The third issue of The Funambulist Magazine is dedicated to clothing politics, examining a scale of design closer to bodies than the ones previously studied in the past issues. The layers of fabric we incorporate (i.e. form into a body) are all charged both legally and normatively, and this charge combines with those related to a body’s race, gender, behavior, and spatial-temporal context. This issue thus proposes to examine this combination of normative charges — sometimes turned into law — through various wearable objects we call clothes: shoes, pants, shirts, accessories, and different head garments.
