Please join Joshua Katcher for a pre-fashion-week presentation on “FASHION & ANIMALS: decoding & harnessing the dialect of fashion culture to help animals”, with Q&A featuring renowned, award-winning fashion designer John Bartlett.
This presentation premiered in October in Boston, then again in November in Paris, and now it comes home to New York City, just in time for fashion week.
This talk will focus on the symbols and iconography of various forms of power communicated through dress, and utilized in the fashion industry, exploring how those symbols and icons create a dynamic that not only rationalizes and excuses violence towards animals, but encourages their consumption and the display of their skins as the primary method of showcasing one’s individual sexuality, power and worth.
RSVP on the Facebook page for the event.
Sunday, February 6 · 6:00pm – 8:00pm
841 Broadway, 2nd Floor
New York, NY
