Rainer Ganahl: Comme des Marxists

Creating connections between the industrial revolution, the on-going class struggles and tragedies, Ganahl’s project challenges our understanding of the fashion system.

As part of the year-long celebration for its 10 year anniversary, The Centre for Sustainable Fashion is working with Austrian born New York based artist Rainer Ganahl and the Fashion Space Gallery in London to showcase parts of his Comme des Marxists project. The project looks at fashion and art as a political force for change. The gallery space will come alive through a series of workshops and performances throughout its run.Comme des Marxists continues Ganahl’s long-term investigations into the relationships between daily life, culture, economic systems and political structures. The ongoing project, presented for the first time in the UK, is a contemporary analysis of how capitalism works, injecting humour into Ganahl’s connections between class struggle, politics, design, and consumerism.
