Ritual Power of Clothing Part I: The Clothes of Rites de Passage

Rituals are an inevitable part of religious, professional, and personal life. They grow around the most important social events. We all have to submit to them, more or less willingly. All ritualistic behavior requires a visual setting. The most important part is clothing. The right choice of garment proves commitment to the ritual and knowledge of the rules that govern it. The ritual power of fashion is the infinite and ever-changing field of research.

  2. “Korteh” is a ritual dress, the inspiration of urban clothes. Sara Kariman
  3. Rites of Passage – Wedding Headgear. Jasna Paličková & Ms Eva Hasalová

The Power of Collecting and Collections

Collecting as a practice and the collections that result from this practice are crucial for museums. Collecting and collections embody power on many different levels – providing insights and basic knowledge, illustrating specific practices of our work to the widest audiences, and forming a basis for contextualizing our world. How have museums, collecting, and collections influenced communities? How have groundbreaking exhibitions impacted museums and collections? We encourage original papers that discuss the practice and results of collecting as powerful tools in the fields of decorative arts and design, glass, and costume.
