Costume as kin-making material

Forskningsoutput: KonferensbidragKonferenspaper, ej i proceeding/ej förlagsutgivet


This presentation aims to discuss and unfold costume strategies that build on ecofeminist Donna Haraway’s notion of ‘making kin’. As an artistic researcher, I advocate that awakening artistic curiosity and openness towards materialities is cultivated through co-creative practices of thinking-with ‘a host of companions in sympoietic’ (Haraway 2016: 31). Haraway argues that kinship is not a given but requires attention, perseverance, and care among humans (performers or wearers) and non-humans (costume understood as crafted vibrant matter). Kin-making is “becoming” together – a process where human bodies and more-than human materialities are equally valuable. In the context of costume, ‘making kin’ suggests a relational-sensible process that requires that humans are willing to listen to and be affected by the crafted vibrant materialities.
