SERPICA NAROからNU☆MAN宛にメールが届いた。
10月にスイス・ジュネーブのEspace Temporaireで、「制服」をテーマにした「MULTIFORMA」と題するワークショップをするので協力してほしいとのこと。なので、「制服」をネタにした作品の写真か実物を、作品についての簡単な説明を添えて、かれらに送りたいと思います。

個人を一つの集団に組み込み統制するための「制服」を茶化すのもありだし、「制服」の社会的機能を逆手に取った、一時的な抵抗の戦術としての「制服」ってのもありだと思います。あるいは、「制服」を着なければいけない職場で、さり気なく反抗するためのアイデアとかもいいですね。とりあえず案を出し合って、何か作りましょう。

MULTIFORMA by Serpica Naro | workshop description
+++++++++++++++
"When we put on our uniforms, we become invisible" (says a cleaner in“Bread and Roses” - by Ken Loach)

Uniforms have always been carries of messages highlighting the collective identity and eclipsing individual subjectivity- In religion, uniforms express virtue, in armies bravery and obedience,at work, hygiene, order, status. All uniforms have the aim to provide an individual with sameness within a collective, while at the same time making her or him distinct from the members of another collective.

Under Fordism, work was for life and labor constituted identity.
Uniform overalls stressed the strong collective identity of industrial labor. The very definitions of blue collars and white collars referred to collective ways of working and being, to entire systems of political values and consumer lifestyles, private desires and social expectations.

In today's workplace, employees and freelancers suffer on their bodies and in their minds the consequences of unilateral flexibility and frantic multitasking: careers have fragmented and labor rights have gone the same way. In service industries, for example, the uniform is
thus a sign of subjection to the managerial logic of a retail and/or logistic chain. It's a sign of domination, not of inclusion.
More than a uniform, it has become a MULTIFORM.

During the workshop the creation of a multiform will have to follow a ironic/allegorical register. It will have to express the hyperbole of the contemporary labor market, where employers ask for ever more flexibility and for ever lower wages. Our multiform could in fact be a "hyperuniform" expressing corporate excess to the point of not being really wearable at work.

Conversely, it could emerge from a real need of tailoring one's clothes on one's real mulitasking necessities and solve the deficiencies that the globalized clothing industry has been uanble to solve, because it's incapable of satisfying individual needs, fixated as it is on fabricated market trends and niches.


The workshop is divided in two parts. The first is theoretical and will revolve around a discussion on contemporary life at work, by highlighting issues and questions. The second part will be practical and will see the construction of personal or collective "multiforms", the converse of Fordist uniforms, expressing individual qualities but also collective demands and needs.
