A New Web-Based Costume Workbook

Clothes.TellExperienced members of the Costume Committee create „Clothes tell stories“: the Costume Workbook, an on-line catalog of written and visual ideas of how to show and use historical and contemporary costume in museums. The target group is primarily smaller organi­sations such as local and/or specialized museums, for example city museums, which do not always have access to trained, experi­enced costume staff. In particular, easy and/or inexpen­sive solutions to presentation and interpretation will be stressed, making this a go-to resource also for museums and local collections in geo­graphical areas where ICOM is underrepresented. – For further information, contact the costume Committee’s Chair, Katia Johanson at kj@dkks.dk ; website:http://www.clothestellstories.com
