Viscose, Issue 5 – Retail

375 SEK
Sold out.

Viscose is the world’s most exciting journal for fashion criticism. Through specially edited thematic issues, each of which re-imagines the format of the journal entirely, Viscose gives space to genre-defying thinking that challenges and expands the possibilities of research, practice, and critique in/of fashion. In record time, the journal has cultivated a niche audience around the globe with stockists in over 15 countries, addressing intellectual fashion communities anywhere while rejecting ghettoization in any discipline, industry, or location. By collaborating with institutions and museums to cultivate research, Viscose is and remains proudly advertising-free.

In this issue:
The latest issue is particularly tactile with a cover made from the slick, thin material of shopping receipts, perfectly setting the mood for the Retail theme of the fifth edition. Explore retail spaces and cultures from the shopping mall to the high street, as well as the underlying social and political relationships embedded in this modern pasttime. Find inside essays about the allure of the shop window, the surrealist connection between Duchamp and the department store, the climate-controlled discomfort of Filipino malls, and much more.
