Yvonne Foerster


Yvonne Förster deals with the philosophy of fashion and technology. In her work, she connects philosophical concepts and fashion theory to analyse current developments in fashion and artistic practices using wearables, immersive-, and sensor-technologies. Her focus lies on the potential of fashion to create new, inclusive, and livable futures. She considers the field at the intersection of fashion, art, and science a productive fundament to understand the cultural implications of fashion in a critically engaged way. Förster teaches and performs in collaborations with artists and creators in technology. Currently, Förster is appointed as Foreign Expert and Research Professor at Shanxi University Taiyuan, China and teaches philosophy at Leuphana University Lüneburg, Germany.
