Fashion Guest Speaker: Otto Von Busch - Haktivism and Fashion

Lecture: ‘Becoming Fashionable: Hacktivism and Engaged Fashion Design’

Otto von Busch is a haute couture heretic, fashion renegade and DIY-demagogue exploring ways to hack the operating system of fashion. His received his PhD in fashion design from Göteborg University (Sweden).
He explores with hands-on projects, how participatory practices can render fashion inclusive, yet still exclusive. To realize this he draws on the practice and tactics of hacking, fan fiction, liberation theology and development practice with which he forges an alliance. They all share an approach that can inspire to liberate the mythical energy in fashion – hacking the flows of the operating system, but keeping the power on.
