Paper Afore Press

“Paper Afore Press” is the International Library of Fashion Research’s second exhibition in collaboration with the National Museum’s textile department & conservators. A selection of printed objects and ephemera from our permanent collection will be investigated through various lab and research techniques such as x-rays, scans and microscopes, where different paper fibers, textures and delicacies will unfold. What’s the role of paper today? How has printing, binding, folding evolved over time, as we go from paper to electrons? And what is worth cutting down trees for?

Featuring Alia Mascia (XEROXED), Dr. Daphne Mohajer va Pesaran, Ilaria trame, Lydia Kamitsis, Marco Pecorari, Molly Maltman, Our Rags Magazine and Vassilis Zidianakis (ATOPOS). With a special sound installation by Frédéric Sanchez.
