Composting Repair

Collective mind map: Design for disrepair; invisible repair; repair as a capitalist scar; high functioning sometimes means broken (prison systems); landscapes; Country; maintenance and freedom

In November, Alexandra Crosby was lead composter in a repair session of the Composting Feminisms reading group. Together, they read these texts, and made connections between design studies, feminism and the environmental humanities.

The relationships between textile repair, discard studies and fashion become a key focus of this session because of they ways our values manifest in the clothing, storage, and consumption choices we make every day.
