Joerg Fingerhut (HUB) and collaborating MPI-based researcher Aenne Brielmann participated in a panel discussion hosted by William Paterson University (WPU), conversing with Laura Di Summa, professor of philosophy and co-curator of the exhibition “Fashion is a Verb: Art, Performance, and Identity” at the WPU Galleries.

They presented preliminary findings of a group of ongoing studies concerned with the transformative aspect of fashion on identity and relationship to others, as well as investigating a possible Aesthetic Self Effect for fashion. The studies were conducted in collaboration with WPU, also using exhibits from “Fashion is a Verb”, such as artworks by artists like Cindy Sherman or Mari Katayama, as stimuli. 

The exhibition was on view from Jan 31st, 2022 up until May 6th, 2022. Find out more about it here.
