Design Seminars

The Design Seminars aim to introduce contemporary research and professional work within the field of design, art, media, music and more.

The series of lectures present perspectives of artistic research, textile and fashion design profession, methodologies and practices – with outlooks to the history and theories of art, architecture, philosophy and design.

The design seminars targets MA students in fashion and textile design but are included in courses also for PhD students in fashion and textile design as well as for BA students in textile design. The lectures are open to all teachers and students at the Swedish School of Textiles. If you are not a student or teacher at the Swedish School of Textiles you are probably welcome – but due to lack of space please mail and announce Pia Mouwitz just in case. Please have a look at Kronox to get the latest update.

7 February - Petter Hellsing

Petter Hellsing likes to create a tension between the safe and the distressing. Through dislocations and relocations of motifs and shapes, domestic textiles turn into a mysterious map of memories and social rituals.In a number of exhibitions and public works, Petter Hellsing has also explored the relationship between manual work and digital technology, as well as the possibilities of artistic work to collect and pass on stories.
Petter Hellsing was educated at Konstfack, University College of Arts, Crafts and Design Stockholm, Sculpture department. More information about Petter.

21 February - Klas Nyberg

The Genesis and transition of Ready-to-Wear in Sweden since 1750
The rise of  today’s high street fashion retailers must be understood against the background of the social and financial transformation of the textile and clothing industry since early modern time. This development has been characterized by the abolition of the 18th century guild system and the rise of ready-made clothing in the 19th century, the 20th century industrialization of the garment industry and finally the most recent transition towards a global mass-market with progressively more affordable clothes.
