Ivor MacAskill

Work with Live Art Denmark
2016 Gendersuarus Salon at Live Art for Børn

Gendersaurus Salon
Ivor brought a T-shirt workshop to our children’s festival, conducted together with Carl Michael Richardt and part of the larger Gendersaurus Rex project. Together with their participants, they explored how and what clothes says about who you are. They discussed questions like: What if you cannot choose for yourselves what your clothes say about you? Some clothing stores have not many options – pink for girls, blue for boys, princesses or pirates, flowers or trucks. But colors are just colors and things are just things. So why should our clothes be allowed to decide who we are?
