Fashion Drive

Extreme Clothing in the Visual Arts

A journey through circa 500 years of fashion history as reflected in art: How have artists reacted to extreme phenomena such as slashed clothing, codpieces, the crinoline, or the dinner jacket? Fashion is an economic factor as well as a seismograph of social sensitivities, an expression of longing, and an instrument for mechanisms of inclusion and exclusion. In the modern age of global homogenization through “fast fashion,” this exhibition aims to provide a critical and at the same time sensory overview of clothing in art and the problematic and subversive moments in the history of fashion through the techniques of painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, photography, and film.

Please notice: The book will be published in April 2018. You can already pre-order it.
