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?

Morten Buch

The Last Resort
Morten Buch (born in 1970) is part of a new generation of painters in Scandinavia that link the legacy of Danish Expressionism to the minimalist coolness of American formal vocabulary. The portrayal of everyday objects and interiors attain a room-filling presence within the format of the painting and this lends objects a “familiar strangeness”, that of a monumental, intense drawing that links in with the manipulations of today’s digital image culture.
This comprehensive publication of the artist’s first solo exhibition in a German gallery has been created in cooperation with Kunstmuseum Horsens and shows works from recent years as well as the newest paintings.
