“Designed and Maltreated Bodies: Gender-Enhancements by and through Design”

Gendered bodies are everywhere, each individual has and owns one. Manifold factors deeply influence our bodies, social standards conflict with social reality: desirable vs. despised bodies, social constructions of beauty vs. ugliness and fit vs. untrained bodies … Hosted by the director of designxport, Dr. Babette Peters, Uta Brandes will talk about fashion(dictates), objectified models, cruel fashion designers and photographers, and sexism, also referring to the “me too”-debate.
