State of Fashion sets out to find makers and practitioners with radical ideas and perspectives, to co-create a collectively commissioned work for the exhibition 'Fashion as Encounters' curated by NOT_____ENOUGH Collective as part of State of Fashion 2022 | Ways of Caring.

The process

NOT____ENOUGH Collective considers collective work pivotal in resisting the dominant standards in fashion. They are looking for max. 9 practitioners to collectively create 3 new works, especially for this exhibition. 

The process of co-creation will take place over a period of 4 months and will be moderated by the members of the Not Enough Collective. The process will start in February 2022 and will end in May 2022. By May, the works must be produced, reproduced and/or transported to the Netherlands. State of Fashion 2022 I Ways of Caring opens on 2 June 2022. Through online working sessions, participants will work collectively to respond to the theme of their choice. 

Please note that the creative process will happen online only, as applicants are spread all over the world. We are aiming to facilitate one working visit to Arnhem, the Netherlands, depending on the developments around COVID-19. 

Application deadline

The open call starts on November 4th 2021, and closes on December 16th 2021. The submission form will be available at the website until midnight December 16th 2021 CEST.
