Design ⇅ Research ⇄ Sociology
Gender ⇆ Visual Culture ⇅ Fashion
Floriane Misslin
⤷My practice resides somewhere between visual and critical design, fashion and gender studies, sociology and its research methods.
I design methodologies and media that provide creative and critical ways of exploring the entanglements between bodies and visual culture, and more particularly their relation to gender. My workshops invite participants to creatively engage in the politics and ethics of designing research methods, as well as reflecting on how design produces normative notions of identities and gender.

My book and ongoing project ⟶Diagramming Fluidity studies the diverse ways of envisioning the fluidity of gender in fashion photography whilst the clothing industry is established on the binary menswear / womenswear. The visual outcome of the research is part of the exhibition Designs for Different Futures currently on show at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, US.
