YOUNG GREEKS: Kareem Kalokoh introduces ATH Kids - 032c

"In our neighborhood Patisia, there are a lot of African people as well as people from Albania. There’s a lot of foreigners that live there, and they always told us you couldn’t make it out of Greece because it’s a really small country and there’s not a lot of chances. Even for the Greek people, there’s not a lot of chances here. So, we always had that motive: the grind."

Nike in 2020: Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats - 032c

"Is it fair to expect Nike, a sportswear company, to innovate how we talk about the environmental crisis? Absolutely. Finding a solution to global warming is something that even Nike can’t “just do,” but if you have the talent and resources to invent a shoe so high-performing that it defies international sports law (and possibly physics), you can tap the talent necessary to have a conversation about language. In fact, if you are Nike, you can lead the discourse by making up your own."

"Experience delivers a serious blow to chronological or progressive time, of course, but my interest is the moral dimension of time. We all know about the teeming multiplicities of pretty much everything, but what are the next steps we can take besides just declaring that in interesting or poetic ways? Where can we go, what can we take?"

What Glitters? Imagining the 032c Cosmic Workshop Ready-to-Wear Sequined Trouser - 032c

"Introduced in medieval times and popular at the height of Baroque and Rococo trompe l’oeil, moiré is produced by weaving two ribbed fabrics together to create sinuous, rippled patterns, for an optical illusion of depth and fluidity. While developing the garments that would pilot the 032c Ready-To-Wear collections, designed by creative director Maria Koch, our womenswear team was drawn to moiré precisely for its inherent depth and capacity for double-entendre and suggestion. Moiré appears in the RTW line not only as a fabric choice, but as a concept and a method." ✨

MEDIA HABITAT c. 1975 - 032c

"The language of rights as we know it is very problematic, particularly within the context of the UN. There is a narrative about the right of countries to speak for themselves, so this is already imminent to the logic of the invitation. But in terms of the “future generations” scripting of the Sharjah Triennial, what we’re looking at is a system of filmmaking that is supposed to short circuit that possibility. So our project is a cautionary tale in that regard as well: it’s about how rights might be foreclosed by a body meant to ensure them."
