«From Recens Paper to Wallet: Print publishing, fashion criticism and the powers involved.» Elise by Olsen in conversation with Saúl Baeza. Activity in the framework of the Degree Show of Elisava 2019
Elise By Olsen (b. 1999, Oslo, Norway) is an editor, publisher and curator based between Oslo, Lisbon and London. With an expansive list of art- and fashion projects, she has collaborated with institutions such as British Fashion Council, 89plus (Hans Ulrich Obrist and Simon Castets), Business of Fashion, Thaddaeus Ropac, Central Saint Martins, TEDx, and brands such as Galeries Lafayette, SSENSE and Gucci.
She currently serves as the Editor-in-Chief of Wallet, a new publication dedicated to critical dialogue within the fashion industry: the business, the money, the politics. In Wallet’s past issues she has examined topics such as authorship, publishing and education, speaking to the major financial and political clout of an increasingly global industry. Prior to founding Wallet, Elise was internationally recognized as “the world’s youngest editor-in-chief” at age 13 in international press. Her first publication, Recens Paper is a renowned youth culture magazine, from which she has now resigned.
After the talk, a beer will be served thanks to Estrella Damm.
