Program Description

Since 2007, the studio JF & SON has been probing the landscape of contemporary design through an experimental fashion practice. During its four-month residency at MAD, JF & SON will create Epic Failure, the studio’s first formal collection of projects exploring the effects of globalization, risk analysis, and sabotage of production processes. Through a series of tests, research projects, lectures, and films, Epic Failure will expand JF & SON’s explorations into the democratization of design; manufacturing in today’s climate; how the consumer relates to the design process; and above all, what new aesthetics can arise from all this.
