Those wondering why we wear what we wear. Led by MoMA’s pioneering senior design curator Antonelli (who’s overseen the museum’s acquisition of a Boeing 747 and the @ symbol), this course focuses on a selection of about 70 accessories and garments from around the world, from 3D-printed dresses to kente cloth. One section focuses on silhouettes—how clothes play a part in the evolution of body ideals across different cultures. Another examines the planned obsolescence of today’s fast-fashion brands, and what happens to clothes when they’re discarded.
What you get:
Seven-week course featuring two to three hours of video lectures, readings, and assessments per week.
