"Fashion, Translation and Innovation. The Case of Belgian Fashion"
(2016年10月10日10時~12時 法政大学市ヶ谷キャンパスボアソナードタワー19階会議室D)

Since the six of Antwerp fashion has become increasingly important in Antwerp and increasingly Brussels, Hasselt and other cities. Antwerp fashion has attracted a lot of attention in the media and to some extent in academic circles (Bernheim 2008). In our analysis we follow existing studies focusing on the importance of regulatory framework or institutional intermediaries in creating a national fashion. However we also aim to study the elusive notion of ‘creativity’ and ‘inspiration’ with a particular attention for the translation of codes in different realms (Pang & Toprak 2016). Despite the general commercialization of the textile sector since globalization high end designer fashion actively engaged in the ‘re-artification’ (Van de Peer 2014) of their trade through a conceptual approach of fashion. The material culture around fashion and design have a type of text that expresses symbols and contributes to discourses and to cultural repertoires. Fashion is a type of text that expresses symbols and contribute to discourses and cultural repertoires through the communication of the designers and fashion media.

Lecture Workshop "Patterns in 19th Century Japanese-Swiss Textile Exchange, as Seen by an Art Historian"
(2016年1月26日14時30分~16時30分 法政大学市ヶ谷キャンパスボアソナードタワー9階904教室)

Lectured by Hans Bjarne Thomsen(Institute of Art History, University of Zurich, Switzerland)

At the Section for East Asian Art in the University of Zurich, Switzerland, we have been engaged for several years in research that relate to 19th Century Japanese-Swiss textile exchange. The exchange was a vital one that became enormously important for both parties - not only in economic terms, but also those related to arts and culture. By exploring various case studies in Switzerland and also in Japan, we hope to cast light on various aspects of the trade and knowledge transfer that created both wealth and change in both countries. In today’s talk I will be focusing on four themes: Yokohama, Swiss industries, Swiss individuals active in Japan, and the objects brought back by to Switzerland.
