"They're hissing that this shoot was like the Black n White Ball of fashion edits and therefore a proverbial guest list to end all casting guest lists. From legends to the newest of the now, the Hiss Squad has been assured that this fashion extravaganza, styled to within an inch of existence, spells fashion with the capital F."

A habit is an everyday expression of unintentionally obtained and individually embodied knowledge. The term “habit” is often loaded with negative connotations; habits are to be broken or unlearned. New Habits proposes that we rethink the notion of the habit as a form of life central to community formation, in negotiation with the governing rules and laws. New Habits looks for shared, communal habits or forms of life marked by a non-capitalist ethos of commoning, as a necessary counterpoint to direct action and representative politics.
Italian philosopher Giorgio Agamben’s recent analysis of Franciscan practices in calling for a new politics provided a major impetus for New Habits. Under the guiding virtue of “highest poverty”, from their formation in the thirteenth century the Franciscans lived a form of common life that incorporated but defied established rules and norms of the Church.

Although he rarely used a camera, Robert Heinecken (1931–2006) is widely regarded as one of the most influential photographers of post-War America. He described himself as a ‘paraphotographer’, and it was as such that he tirelessly explored the nature of photography and the ideas traditionally associated with it through a large variety of techniques, including sculpture, video, printmaking and collage. The exhibition at WIELS examines a pivotal period in his career, during which Heinecken used a Polaroid SX-70 camera.
