Dezernat Internationale Beziehungen Allgemein

Delve into the worlds of fashion and film from the 70s and 80s! You will learn to explore and analyse the liminal role of the body in both media.





Over the course of the second feminist wave and the sexual revolutions from 1968 the female body has become political. Questions of cultural identity, class struggle and revolutionary potentials started to shift from discursive approaches to the space of bodily manifestations. Both film and fashion have become exemplary media for the aesthetic expression of the new role of the human body.


Throughout the seminar we aim to examine the role that film and fashion can take in constituting the (female) body as a political field. We want to bring together a geographically decentralized perspective with concrete analysis of body depictions and conceptions in fashion and film. Connecting theoretical work concerning the human body as a political field with the practical questions of how to analyse film and fashion (as overlapping media), this seminar focusses on cross media analysis on the one hand and political aesthetics on the other hand.

Exemplary material of analysis will include: Canonical films such as Pier Paolo Pasolini’s 120 days of Sodom (IT, 1975) as much as internationally less well-known examples from Brazil and Japan such as Lady on the Bus (BRA, 1978) and Ecstasy of the Angels (JPN, 1972). In terms of fashion we will analyse the role of Japanese designers such as Rei Kawakubo and Issey Miyake within the fashion system of the 80s. Additionally, we will examine the female body and radical fashion as a form of feminist protest. The objective of the seminar hence also includes to bring the different cultural backgrounds of the participants into a fruitful dialogue.


We consider the online part of the class as an important step for creating a common ground of discussion. A theoretical basis will be worked out through text discussions and close readings. We will also start looking at material and working on analytical tools.  During the week in March spent in Weimar we will take the next step in connecting theory and practice. We would like to invite the whole Spring School to film screenings at the Lichthaus Cinema in Weimar which may include short presentations by the participants. If possible, we would also like to include guest lectures related to the seminar. Viewing the material together and connecting it to the previously outlined theories and methods, promises to create space for thematically profound discussions.


The course is part of the "Bauhaus Spring School”. Further information and application details can be found here: https://www.uni-weimar.de/springschool/en
