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?

Gert and Uwe Tobias

The artist duo are causing a major sensation around the world with large-scale, colourful woodcut prints and unconventional typewriter drawings. The inspiration for their cycles of work comes from a variety of sources, ranging from folklore to art-historic traditions. Everyday patterns, motifs from Dutch still life and abstract shapes from the Russian avant-garde are assembled, collage-like, in puzzle prints to form new visual worlds. Their artistic process is caught in the delicate balance between cultural memory and individual recollection and releases stored energy in collective symbols, updating them for the present day.
