beuys body collective

Beuys’s urgency of conservation of natural life and regeneration of man-nature equilibrium along with seeking a more equal and free society in regards to his social sculpture approach has still resonances in our anthropocentric art and design world. His shamanic practice of his non-anthropocentric philosophy created an integration of human and non-human elements as well as living and non-living things to the artwork. This approach was instrumental for the collective healing process to save humans and the planet. 

 

In our collective and inter-disciplinary project we want to appropriate  Beuys’s shamanic approach in to an eco-feminist and inclusive design perspective which will be implemented through circular and bio-design. Starting from the body , roots and the waste – both as extract of nature and as design flow -as raw materials the co-creative process will be carried out by a collective of fashion designers, textile designers , artists and industrial designers.

 

In line with Beuys’s focus on rebuilding , discovering and improving approach , the design outcome would be an evolving , growing and becoming hybrid design through cross fertilizations between gender , nature and human. By using upcycling method as a means of reusing, reclaiming and repurposing of a non-used menswear item which will be evolved and transformed with shamanic artistic illustrations, we will develop a creative process by challenging the boundaries between man and nature , as well as between man and woman. The structural non-living object as garment than would be developed in to a living thing that would grow in to dynamic organism  independent from its static structured design , thus will become an agency for other lives . The work is dreamed to be a paradigm of both nature’s and female wisdom.
