Estetika Walk

The performance was conceived for the catwalk and exhibited to an art audience at the Johann Jacobs Museum in Zurich. Estetika Walk presents fashion for fluid identities and intends to use them to mobilize transformative forces in pursuit of “Becoming Minority – Becoming Roma”. It responds to the fossilized images of Roma in Switzerland and European societies through a multiplicity of incarnations. For Estetika Walk we made fragile wearable art objects from printed media such as newspapers, magazines and posters. 10 young models, for whom our pieces were designed and realized, went over the catwalk while Eva Marking – Mihok played music.
In performance, we transform the media as materials for clothes, shifting the original function and meaning of the material. At the same time, the Roma’s self-representation in Estetika Walk, which is absent in the media, is re-embodied and made visible. To become liquid is the model of existence here. It stands for the recognition of the Roma subtext that runs through all layers of society.
