Joke Robaard is one of four artists commissioned by If I Can’t Dance to produce a new work as part of Edition VI – Event and Duration (2015–2016). In her art practice Joke Robaard operates at the interface of social research, material culture and photography, and connects these with philosophy, textile and fashion theory.
Using her archive of photographs and related texts collected from fashion magazines and other media over a thirty-eight-year period as a starting point, for her commission Robaard will perform her archive through a series of workshops and the documentation of seven assemblages of images, accompanied by captions and texts, on film. Through this, Robaard will read the historical, political and social information embedded within the images.
