09/21 FD Release Patchwork Coats

Sep 30, 05:01 by Ivonne Dippmann

Everytime I recall I pull my nose – black and white jumper edition by Studio Ivonne Dippmann & thekidswantcommunism by FriedrichDippmann

This summer Green Fashion Fair Berlin has celebrated its debut at Haus Ungarn, September 10th – 12th. Based on our capsule edition #thekidswantcommunism FriedrichDippmann presented a first edition of unique patchwork-coats that have been manufactured together with Georg Maier, Mühlhausen.

Since our customers have been asking for coats that can be easily worn over a blouse for example, we´ve decided to push this wish into reality. By using our original designs, we’ve been puzzling each coat together uniquely. This way, we’ve created a very exclusive edition, some with and some without collar, at some of them we´ve attached pockets and sometimes we decided on long arms.

What we particularly emphasize on is the privilege to be able to oversee each step of our production process. That means to build fair and continuous relationships with our manufacturers involved and to be able to discuss with them new ideas and solutions. This way we keep our pieces exclusive and individual. Until now, we’ve also managed to produce portraits of our customers that purchased a jumper from thekidswantcommunism capsule edition. Since this project took its start in Tel Aviv, based on interviews and individual stories, we’d like to continue this personal relationship with our customers. The project title itself, with its many stories and philosophy attached, invited very different people into a space that opened up for discussion about identity, home, capitalism, my hometown Chemnitz or simply how each and everyone of us reflects ones life in relationship to its movement around.

Green Fashion Fair Berlin – behind the scenes at Haus Ungarn
 
This summer Green Fashion Fair Berlin has celebrated its debut at Haus Ungarn, September 10th – 12th and on the occasion I took some images behind-the-scenes. Perceiving fairs of any kind as exhausting experience, the warm and historic atmosphere of Haus Ungarn as well as the selection of brands displayed were worth the hustle. Besides events, shows or workshops emphasizing on a sustainable mindset, Green Fashion Fair Berlin also hosted a pop-up store that invited customers to take a rest in our sofa corner. Creating this friendly space I had the opportunity to have profound and in-depth conversations as well.

Sustainability is not limited to the discussion of humans claiming resources worldwide, furthermore it generates a mindset of how one profoundly understands the energy invested in every step of the production process in order to have a product available and manufactured. And not just that! It also brings into mind how you as a resource yourself communicate and navigate in the world. We don’t need more fashion designer or items being produced, instead we need individuals that create consciousness and political awareness far beyond production. By pushing education in the field of ethics and values, we are enabled to create content and ideas that channel a human friendly mindset that is communicated clearly in our everyday life.

Through modernism, history and time itself became dynamic forces that lead to a lifestyle which is unstable and accelerates continuously. Structure itself became a rare resource, meaning that one has to re-evaluate and re-consider a situation proportionally to its circumstances at all times. Having that in mind, I was very happy to find space and time having few conversations that literally touched someone and resonated within. Lets see what comes around!

„For me, surfaces of any kind can be shaped and addressed. The challenge in working with them is to understand the material and to establish a connection. Thus, as in this work, a small graphic can be transformed into an independent large-format ink drawing or even into a high-quality knitted edition. Precisely these transitions between media and materials are of interest to me, because that’s where creativity takes place.“

„Er ist in seiner Bestimmung ein Wanderer, ist an Ort und Stelle gebannt, nicht abgeholt wie ein Paket in einem verlassenem Bahnhofswinkel, ist historisch gesehen weniger geliebt, ist ein Herumtreiber, fährt zur See, ist auf wundersame Weise feminisiert, hat sich früh an die Abwesenheit gewöhnt, ist kein anderer als der Vergessene, geht auswärts arbeiten, sitzt am Onimbusbahnhof der Linie 24, ist anwesend als Angesprochener, ist zwischen zwei Zeitformen eingekeilt, die der Referenz und die der Anrede, ist ein unverfälschtes Stück Angst, verwandelt die Abfolge der Zeit in ein Hin und Her, nimmt die Trauer auf sich ohne zu weinen, willigt ein den Anderen zu verlassen, ist die Figur der Entbehrung, wird von Gott eingeladen, nimmt allein in einem Café platz, hat die Arme zum Himmel erhoben, beruft sich auf die Wahrheit, ist für meine Weltverfallenheit verantwortlich, entreißt sich der sozialen Selbstgefälligkeit, ist gleichsam der Nullpunkt aller Orte, geht nicht nur in eine Richtung, lässt Verwirrung an seine Stelle treten, lässt uns sehen, vergisst die Geschichte, die Arbeit, das Geld, ist eine Erinnerung woran?…“

Nichts ist ewig. Regen, zirpen, eine Kiefer kippt nach links aus dem Fenster. Ruhe, ach diese unendliche Ruhe. Ich bin allein, um genau zu sein, allein im Wald, nahe einem See mit Steg. Auf dem Steg steht eine blaue Bank. Ich bin hier zu Gast. Meine Gastgeberin ist eine Katze und mein ständiger Begleiter. Geschuldet den Umständen, gehe ich zweimal täglich schwimmen. Früh morgens begrüße ich die Welt mit einem freudigem „Hallo“ und kurz vor Sonnenuntergang beende ich den Tag mit einem Gute Nacht Gruß an die verflossenen Seelen im Äther. Heute nun war ein besonderer Tag, denn es hat geregnet. Der Himmel hatte sich verschlossen, die Wolken ruhten schwer am Horizont. Ich war allein im Wasser, da es in der Ferne donnerte. Man sollte es nicht darauf ankommen lassen, womit sich mein Badespaß verkürzte. Am Ufer tummelten sich wenige Personen, die mit farbigen Reifen und Ähnlichem jongliertem. Auch sie trotzten dem Regen und waren hier wie auch ich. Auch die Hauskatze hat seit heute einen neuen Lieblingsplatz; bei geöffnetem Fenster, auf der Fensterbank, mit Blick auf Buddha im Garten. Wenn ich eine Katze wäre, würde ich auch dort liegen, denn der Ausblick ist irgendwie romantisch. Man schaut direkt in den Kiefernwald gen Sonnenuntergang. Der Regen wird allmählich leiser, die Kerze neigt sich ihrem Ende, wie auch dieser wunderschöne Tag.

thekidswantcommunism – an art project produced in Chemnitz and Tel Aviv by FriedrichDippmann

YaelBenjamin, five available as a high-neck version, unisex, wearable inside-out / SarahYotam, low-neck, unisex, wearable inside-out & back-to-front, Chemnitz 2018

FriedrichDippmann is a Berlin-based collaborative between two artists – Agnes Friedrich and Ivonne Dippmann. Starting off with a fashion- and textile feature on Dippmanns ongoing artbook-production Liebeslied Chemnitz – Tel Aviv in 2016, FriedrichDippmann initiated a textile-based project under the catchy title thekidswantcommunism. Its core and theme have been inspired by a conference on communism at CCA, Tel Aviv as part of the exhibition The Kids Want Communism at MoBY: Museums of Bat Yam curated by Joshua Simon.

Within the process of Liebeslied Chemnitz – Tel Aviv, FriedrichDippmann launched a textile collaboration that created a dialogue between Tel Aviv and Chemnitz. We combined the title of Joshuas exhibition with the iconography of the Karl Marx bust in Chemnitz. With a somehow ‘romantic view’ on communism we created various patterns, limited to a four colour system, that were translated into knitwear technology. Together with the professorship of textile technologies at TU Chemnitz and maximo-Strickmoden we designed and manufactured a first series of twelve individual knitted sweaters. As part of the artbook we documented these prototypes in Tel Aviv and featured twelve friends along with their individual stories at their favourite place-to-be. I interviewed friends and colleagues who I embrace for their vision, mindfulness and ability to share their life and ideas with others. Their individual choice to live in Israel is a crucial aspect and influence for their way of life and vision. The interviews and images will be published along with a short introduction by Tal Gafny and myself as heart and center piece of the book.

thekidswantcommunism underlines the fragility of ones identity in a society based on a multi-cultural approach in a Jewish nation-state. Moreso reminding us to keep values such as a equity or tolerance at heart. The different design-titles carry the names of those friend and colleagues that jumped into the first prototypes and trusted us to share and talk about their lifes. Thank you Anna Pakosz, Michael Tesfay, Benjamin Mecz, Yaniv Shapira, Gregory Abou, Michelle Medenblik, Gil Karniel, Yotam Mahler, Timothy Crosland, Stacy Goltsev, Yael Tabitha Parker and Sarah Reifschneider.

The motivating feedback during Tel Aviv-production inspired us to come up with an upgraded, high-end version as limited edition – that is now up for sale (sweater 365 Euro, beanie 65 Euro). The edition of eighty sweaters has been produced together with the professorship of textile technologies TU Chemnitz, maximo-Strickmoden and Strickchic in Apolda. It was of importance to us that thekidswantcommunism is locally produced, supporting the spirit of Chemnitz and its former industry that has been ‘heart’ of textile production in Saxony, Germany in the past century. maximo-Strickmoden (former VEB* Polar), a family-run company since 1898, is the only company that survived the transition from socialism to capitalism in Chemnitz after reunification.

We wish for each item to find their proper owner and partner in crime. All interviews and images produced in Tel Aviv in autumn 2017 will be published as part of Liebeslied Chemnitz – Tel Aviv this year. The process of both projects is documented under #liebesliedtlvc #lltlvc or #thekidswantcommunism #tkwc. (The release of the publication has been delayed several times due to the enormous work involved in production and editing.)

StacyYaniv, high-neck, unisex, wearable inside-out, Chemnitz 2018

Rechts abbiegen,
Vogel auf der Leiter,
Spiegel auf dem Tisch,
Kartoffelsalat und Wiener.
Im Winter werden die Wege hier nicht gestreut.
Eine Laus läuft über den Freitag,
in meiner unmittelbaren Nähe
auf dem Spitzboden
die Leiter hoch.
Ich schaue in die Wolken.
In eben dieser Sekunde
hackt ein Specht,
euphorisch und siegessicher,
lautstark in die Baumrinde
meines Nachbars Eichen.
Da denke ich mir
wie Recht er hat;
er scheint zu wissen, was er da tut.
Ich gehe nach unten,
schüttel die Betten auf
und sehne mich nach Sonne und Meer.
– Überhaupt
scheint das Sehnen fester Bestandteil meines Charakters zu sein.
Wohin denn sich-sehnen?
Ins heute, ins gestern, ins morgen,
nach jemandem, zu jemandem, in sich hinein?
Ein Zug fährt vorbei,
mit Maschinerie,
denn es ist bereits dunkel.
Nun gut, schieben wir diese Gedanken –
beiseite.
Vorerst.

Vogelgezwitscher.

We’d like to say thank you to everyone who has been involved and supported this project, especially to our partners, models and Joshua Simon who invited this project as part of the closing event of The Kids Want Communism at MoBY Museums in November 2017. There we presented the first edition as performance piece.
