FASHION: Objects, Concepts & Visions is thematically linked to the very successful special exhibition ReFashioning Austria, held in Shanghai’s Liu Haisu Art Museum in December 2016, and focuses on contemporary works. With the exhibition location of Berlin in mind, the selection is supplemented with new works and encompasses around 40 positions of fashion designers and artists.
On display will be experimental objects, ready-to-wear pieces, textile art, jewellery and accessories. A series of video and photo works provides insight into the concepts and visions of Austrian fashion creators. Among these is a photo series created especially for Berlin by the well-known fashion, advertising and portrait photographer Elfie Semotan. Visitors can expect a programme with networking, workshops and guided tours.
