Viscose Journal Issue 05: "Retail"

$30

The fifth issue of Viscose Journal explores fashion’s multifaceted retail spaces and cultures. With the evolution of shopping in the 20th and 21st centuries as its focus, the issue looks at the shop as a central nexus where communities and identities are continuously produced and re-imagined through commerce. With a special attention to the role of fashion retail within urban spatial politics, we seek out histories of projects—often developed with or by artists—that have embraced the shop as a medium of both possibility and contestation.

The magazine design evokes the ephemeral shop receipt that will similarly curl and materially register its reader as it’s used. The receipt is an official proof of a commodity’s acquisition and value, an artefact of a kind of in-person consumption that is often evoked as rapidly heading to extinction. Viscose’s 5th issue invites readers to use their item until breaking point.

Published in partnership with Storefront for Art and Architecture and International Library of Fashion Research. With the generous support of Between Bridges, Berlin.
