Along with an artistic project by Bernadette Huber which will be screened during the exhibit, you will certainly feel transported back in time to the luscious style of years gone by, inspired by one of the ultimate muses.

EXHIBITION
Hawser/Hofer
Image

4th March - 22nd May 2016

Mumok is presenting two young artists Kathi Hofer and Eloise Hawser, giving space to a critical examination of nostalgia as represented in the present. Hofer’s family history is in fashion, creating the iconic Austrian brand Walkjanker, which defied modern trends and technologies to focus on its tradition, featuring in the closets of some world-renowned personalities, and offers enough material to tackle the complexities of addressing history in a modern context. While Hawser also takes to objects which might seem obsolete and irrelevant, and transports them into the contemporary scene. Both Hawser and Hofer show ways of working with fragments of the past, giving them new meanings.
