Selection of projects 2016—2018
Press & Fold is a independent fashion magazine that aims to explore alternative fashion forms and narratives. The bi-annual magazine provides a platform for critical fashion practitioners who do not obey the rules the fashion system is currently dictating. Press & Fold focuses on a fashion reality that isn’t based solely on consuming the latest fashions but on our experiences through fashion, seeking an alternative fashion discourse that goes beyond treating fashion as a commodity. Press & Fold| Notes on making and doing fashion is initiated by Hanka van der Voet in collaboration with Beau Bertens. The magazine is a collaborative research project that connects critical fashion practitioners from all over the world.
Starting in 2016 together with Studio Remco van Bladel we got the opportunity to take over the redesign of Dutch contemporary art magazine Metropolis M. As of today it’s a pleasure to contribute on design and art direction level to each bimonthly issue consisting out of: colomns, artist contributions, reviews, interviews and theme related articles.
