Launch of Viscose Journal Issue 03: Asias
Presentation by editor Jeppe Ugelvig
kl. 17:00 - 20:00
In relation to Stepping Out, GL STRAND have invited curator, critic and editor Jeppe Ugelvig to give an introduction to the third issue of Viscose Journal, which challenges the often stereotyped understanding of fashion production in Asia. Subtitled Asias, the publication unfolds a plurality of voices across the regions bordering the South China Sea and contents the notion of Asia as a singular idea, image and place. Based on two years of research, the issue pays special attention to how Asian fashion producers have fashioned Asia in the past and in the present, and how tactics of symbolic stylization and self-orientalization develop and respond to the contemporary zeitgeist.
Jeppe will introduce to the research behind the magazine and act as voice for the many important contributors based in China. Among others, Hu Yinping whose work “Xiao Fang” is exhibited in Stepping Out! Following the talk, he will show Hu’s video work with the same title, providing a behind-the-scenes-introduction to the series of works.
Following the talk, Jeppe will give a short introduction to a selection of works in the exhibition.
Viscose Journal Issue 03: Asias is edited by Jeppe Ugelvig and Cheuk NG.
