Harm Coordes: The doors of auratic perception
In his lecture performance Harm Coordes will introduce his work.
Within the lecture Harm Coordes will give an insight in the project CHURCH OF THE HAND. He will talk about the use of atmosphere as space, fashion as cult and slow fashion as a statement towards a consumerist society. The quasi-religious artistic community sets out to implement „spiritual branding“ as an exaggerated reflection on current marketing strategies of globally operating companies. COTH necessitates the customers participation, creating multisensoric rooms of experience in between fashion, installation and performance.
