Making History: Pluriverse Perspectives on Fashion & Textile Design Studies, Contributions from Year Two students (AY 2021/22) (2022) Shanna Soh
Co-created with Year 2 students from the department of Fashion & Textile of the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague (KABK) as part of the end of year assignment for the subject of Fashion & Textile History, this exposition combines academic and practice-based research as a contribution to existing discourse on Fashion and Textile design studies. This exhibition showcases a spectrum of research from constructivistic perspectives. Contributions range from those which highlighted the politics of identity in the design canon of fashion and textiles; to attempts to resurrect lost crafts; to addressing the importance of designers being able to move beyond the role of being a maker operating on figuratively isolated islands, towards that which operates more as a hub of human connections in socially-engaged and socially-responsible ways. In order to preserve the ephemeral nature of students' explorations in art & design education setting and in the spirit of Arturo Escobar's vision on the Pluriverse, students are given the freedom to propose their topic of choice and to deepen their knowledge as independently as possible. Guidance was given only when sought. In line with retaining the integrity of students' works, no interventions were made to student' contributions in this exhibition.

Making Histories: Pluriverse Perspectives on Fashion & Textile Design Studies. Contributions from Year One students (AY 2021/22) (2022) Shanna Soh
This exhibition is co-created by Year One students (2021/22) from the department of Fashion and Textile in The Royal Academy of Art, The Hague (KABK) after attending a series of lectures examining the historical study of Fashion & Textile design from constructivistic perspectives. This exhibition showcases a spectrum of practice-based research, ranging from imagined narratives from the past; to observations on the global cultural impact of (digital) fashion and music; to attempts in addressing gaps of knowledge and imbalances in the eco-system of fashion & textile in the past, present & future. In order to preserve the ephemeral nature of students' explorations in art & design education setting and in the spirit of Arturo Escobar's vision on the Pluriverse, students are given the freedom to propose their topic of choice and to deepen their knowledge as independently as possible. Guidance was given only when sought. In line with retaining the integrity of students' works, no interventions were made to student' contributions in this exhibition. Author / Curator Shanna Soh; Co-creators Riet Pedro, Emma Lobina, Carina Georgescu, Jungyun Jang, Noah Warmer, Renee Buitendlijk, Simon Veldkamp, Hiromu Takeshita, Zhenyi Zhou, Laura Garnier, Marie-Eve Verdrines, Bas Pol, Marijn Brinksma, Kim Gemmink, June Gibbs.

Overlapping Competencies (2022) Joel Diegert
Saxophonist Joel Diegert and composer Adrián Artacho began a collaboration in 2014 with a question about real-time electronics in contemporary music: what kind of works could be produced if the electronics were treated as a ‘part of’ the saxophone? In this presentation they look at the composer-performer relationship with a particular interest in projects that employ real-time electronics. They will describe some of the challenges that can arise in co-creative work and offer strategies for collaboration that center on the idea of ‘overlapping competencies’. The work aubiome for soprano saxophone and live electronics, which was developed during Joel’s doctoral research, will be referenced as a case study.
