Book Sprint on Fashion and Labor, or WorkWear

Book-Sprint-On-Demand! Between May 23rd and 27th, the Fashion Praxis Lab hosts a book sprint on the topic of Fashion and Labor at Parsons School of Design. As its point of departure, we will reexamine parts of Hannah Arendt’s The Human Condition, especially the distinction between labor, work and action/praxis, to see how these categories may help us see the labor of fashion from new angles: from the perils of sweatshop labor, design labor, glamor labor, and internment labor to the mythical deeds of excellence that are the aesthetic actions of true courage.
