What are the processes that enable archives to become productive? Conventional archives tend to be defined through the content-specific accumulation of material, which conforms to an existing order or narrative. They rarely transform their structure. In contrast to this model of archival practice and preservation, the conflictual archive has an open framework in which it actively transforms itself, allowing for the creation of new and surprising relationships. Illustrating how spaces of knowledge can be devised, developed, and designed, this archive reveals itself as a space in which documents and testimonies open up a stage for productive dispute and struggle.

Exploring nontraditional archives, such as those of Harald Szeemann, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Sitterwerk, and the publishing house Merve, The Archive as a Productive Space of Conflict offers new perspectives on archival practice, interrogating whether archives need spatial permanence, and, if so, which design framework should be applied for the archive to take on more than a singular form of existence. The research project is a collaboration between the Karlsruhe University of Art and Design and the Geneva School of Art and Design (HEAD – Genève).

Soon after the birth of Purple Prose, Zahm and Fleiss created spin-off publications like les cahiers purple, Purple Sexe, Purple Fiction, and of course, Purple Fashion. Zahm aimed at fusing together his two worlds, fashion and art, in creating Purple.

Mode and Mode 2

Mode and Mode 2 ‘a publication in a publication’ features the Berlin/Paris-based fashion design practice of BLESS, Ines Kaag and Desiree Heiss, and their ongoing ‘lookbook collaborations’ project. Also featuring image contributions from Harriet Barrile, Ricarda Bigolin, Michael Bojkowski, Felix Burrichter, Tim Coster, Friedrich-Wilhelm Graf, Brad Haylock, Jared Leon and Johanna Heldebro, Thalea Michos-Vellis, Sophie Mörner, Alisa Närvänen, Virginia Overell, Manuel Raedar, Jerome Rigaud, Jason Schlabach and Annie Wu.

Mode and Mode is a periodical that addresses printed matter in fashion practice. Each issue explores experimental publishing in fashion with an interview around a print-based project — one that has critical effects to fashion as a discourse. In doing so, we reflect on the role of print and its potency to disrupt, or propel, fashion narratives.
