Demonstrator 2: Post-Couture Collective and meshit


Going beyond any DIY aesthetic, Post-Couture offers international fashion designs as open digital patterns for people to produce themselves. The clothing pieces are produced locally using a laser cutter or ordered as prefabricated sets. For the VIENNA BIENNALE, tools of the maker culture are transferred into a shopping context. Together with Austrian fashion label meshit, Post Couture is bringing a future consumption and production scenario to life as an alternative to the fast-paced fashion industry.

In context of the exhibition CityFactory: New Work. New Design.

The StadtFabrik [City factory], a research laboratory for new fields within the creative industries, will explore new cultures of production and work in the context of the VIENNA BIENNALE 2017: Robots. Work. Our Future. Six demonstrators within the city and in the sweeping exhibition at the MA K make visions of new fields of work in the digital future tangible from a design perspective: Scenarios of new creative work, new social work, and new sustainable work will be presented by means of the demonstrators and ca. 20 positions by international design studios. The City Factory demonstrators invite active participation. As interventions and concepts for “New Design,” they showcase the unused resources that ar e to be found in the city and future modes of alternative production and consumption
