Study Club Presentation
Clothing as A State of Power
11 – 31 December 2020
Cemeti – Institute for Art and Society
Jl. DI Panjaitan No.41, Mantrijeron, Yogyakarta, Indonesia
The clothing we wear is inseparable from our social system, wherever we are. Power is certainly reflected through clothing and the bodies that wear them. This is not just power in the structural sense (for instance, the relationship between dominant and subordinate groups), but also non-agential and non-structural power, that is “power that is everywhere and originates from everywhere”. It is possible to investigate the complexity of relations of power, including by examining clothing, whether through aspects of the mechanisms of production or by looking at the way meaning is generated in society.
This public presentation will explain a variety of interpretations, beginning with at least seven key words that are explored personally by each participant when they discuss clothing and it’s connection to power: identity, image, function, ideology, uniform and symbols, along with meaning and memory. Instead of an exhibition, the appearance of works in “Clothing as a State of Power” is being referred to as a presentation, because it departs from studies that are still ongoing. Developed from independent research on actual issues related to clothing, every participant has tried to explain, from an artistic perspective, how power is manifested and exists as a social determinant through the material and visual forms we wear in the everyday.
“Study Club: Clothing as A State of Power” is a study group that focuses on clothing that has been initiated by Mella Jaarsma and managed through the Incubator Initiative since November 2019. This group specifically studies topics associated with the relationship between clothing and power. Utilising various interdisciplinary perspectives, the outcomes of the studies are then developed and processed through artistic approaches. As part of this extended learning process, this public presentation is presented by the Incubator Initiative in cooperation with Cemeti – Institute for Art and Society.
