Event | Salon Talks – Bodies of Work

Curative: Confronting and Healing the Fashion-Industrial Complex.

Last year we introduced ‘Knowing Cotton Otherwise’, a multidisciplinary exhibition, covering various aspects of this versatile fibre — from its burdened history to sustainable initiatives and innovative implementations worldwide.

The new chapter, which opens on 17 February, amplifies the experience of human bodies entangled in (forced) labour in the story of cotton. This panel talk will provide you with a deep dive into these stories, reflecting on the  new Installation by Sha’mira Covington.
