Publisher's description: This critical anthology, volume 14, from the Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna invites international scholars to debate fashion as a cultural phenomenon and meta-politic at the intersection of artistic, creative, economic and everyday practices. A variety of essays gathered into three sections--aesthetic economies, production of space and alternative aesthetic politics--include topics such as fashion and cultural commodification; the cooperation between the fashion industry and celebrity; the relationship between designer, body, clothing and space; the ethical turn in fashion; the roles of performance and whiteness in fashion today. Contributors locate fashion within the context of a variety of disciplines including art history, cultural sciences, sociology, design and fashion studies. Essays by Endora Comer-Arldt, Ilka Becker, Tanja Bradaric, Martina Fineder, Eva Flicker, Elke Gaugele, Birgit Haehnel, Alicia Kuhl, Michael R. Muller, Sabina Muriale, Taro Ohmae, Barbara Schrodl, Ruby Sircar, Birke Sturm and Monica Titton.
