FASHION: Objects, Concepts & Visions Walking the Line between Craft and Tech: New Positions in Austrian Fashion Design

Objects: The objects represent the experimental aspect of the exhibition and showthe works of young talents who have established themselves in places such as Los Angeles, Tokyo, London and Antwerp. Their work is characterised by an interdisciplinary approach and/or a combination of craftsmanship and modern technology. With references to art, the designers bring to life new creative freescapes and develop utopias.

Visions: Insights into individual design concepts are also showcased through a series of video and photo works on display, including a photo series by Elfie Semotan, especially commissioned for Berlin. Semotan shot ready-to-wear pieces of established labels as well as recent graduates of the fashion class of the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. The additional video works show the translation of design concepts into a contemporary visual language.

Concepts: Offering a view from the outside, the works of four artists who explore the creative tensions between textile and craft, space and body, as well as analogue and digital, will be shown. The chosen artists work with sculpture, installation, object and image, and capture the viewer by means of appropriation and unexpected interventions to create new perceptual patterns.
