A Magazine Reader

A Magazine Reader is a workshop in which a fashion magazine (mainstream, high – end ) is being dissected, critically analysed from various perspectives and put together again in an alternative form. The material from the magazine is used to create a new zine that gives insight into the cultural power and forms of value production that’s at the core of fashion media. Re-reading the magazine by analysing the words, images, materiality, items and strategies of the specific magazine, changes the way we read fashion.
