FASHION AND MATERIALISM

Ulrich Lehmann (University for the Creative Arts)

Marxism in Culture Seminar
Friday 15 June 2012, 17.30-19.30
Senate Room, 1st Floor Senate House (Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU)

Fashion is the most materialist of industries, promoting the constant consumption of new objects at ever increasing intervals. Yet fashion has not been subject to any substantial materialist critique or analysis. In this seminar I will discuss the historical basis and contemporary approach to a materialism of fashion.
Ulrich Lehmann is a cultural historian living inLondon. He works across two areas of research: 1) European cultural history of the long nineteenth century (French Revolution to fin-de-siecle), in particular artisanal labour, its organisation and products; 2) modern fashion history and theory (1860 to today), especially the cross-over between clothing and other cultural philosophies and expressions.
All welcome!
