EXHIBITION
Peter Lindbergh. From Fashion to Reality
Image

A not-to-be-missed exhibition in Munich presents the work of one of the most influential fashion photographers of the past forty years. The new multimedia show puts on display more than 220 objects including films and exclusive, previously unseen material like storyboards, props, polaroids and contact sheets, offering a unique behind the scenes look at Lindbergh’s work, providing a fresh insight into the history of fashion photography over the last few decades. If in Munich this summer, make sure to incorporate a visit into your calendar, it will be worth it!

Feminist Avantgarde of the 1970s

The MUMOK highlights the iconic and important era of the 1970s through a showcase of pieces from the Sammlung Verbund Collection, bringing to light the emancipation of women artists, who for the first time in the history of art began to create their own new and collective self-determined image. These women reflected on stereotypical social expectations in their works, and their views and art are highly relevant even today. The exhibition is divided into four sections: breaking out of one-dimensional role ascriptions as mother, housewife and wife, role-plays, the normativity of beauty, and female sexuality, and is featuring  300 works by 48 artists from Europe and North and South America. Definitely a must see summer exhibition!

EXHIBITION
Demystifying Femininity
Image

Aiming to question and reflect the contemporary connotation of the concept femininity, sexuality and gender roles, the exhibition ‘Demystifying Femininity’ presents a three week long project including a group art show, discussions, artist talks, stand-up comedy and workshops. The featured artists were chosen through an open call asking for diverse approaches on the concept femininity. Artists were invited to explore, demystify, question and redefine the concept, whether it was through a social, personal, political or corporeal approach.

Buy From Jews! Story of a Viennese store culture
Image

Documenting the rise of the department stores in Vienna in the nineteenth century, the new exhibition at the Jewish Museum offers an insight into the lives of the families who stood behind the movement. Names such as Gerngross, Zwieback, Jacob Rothberger, Braun & Co, Goldman & Salatsch, Jungmann & Neffe, and Knize shaped the shopping culture back in the day and the exhibit presents this aspect as well as the architecture and setting, the designers, the customers, and the sales personnel, tailors, and window dressers. Topping it off, the museum invited the young Viennese artist Kathi Hofer to take up motifs of the exhibition and, in the form of an artistic intervention, enable a different view for the visitors.

EXHIBITION
The Vulgar: Fashion Redefined
Image

The Vulgar - Fashion Redefined, curated and organised by the Barbican Center, London, explores the challenging yet compelling territory of taste in fashion.  Showcasing objects spanning the Renaissance to the 21st century, the exhibition at Vienna’s Winterpalais seeks to stimulate discussion around the definition of the word ‘vulgar’. Working with the thesis that (good) taste is purely a matter of opinion, the exhibit showcases historic dress, couture, and ready-to-wear fashion, juxtaposed with textile samples, manuscripts, photography, and film, illustrating how taste is a mobile concept.

Jakob Lena Knebl and the Mumok Collection

A new exhibition at the MUMOK joins the museum’s collection of modernist and contemporary art with the works of the artist Jakob Lena Knebl. Filled with eccentricity, the exhibit addresses the constructs of identity, desire, sensual experience, but also deals with shifting position of art, design, and fashion. Visitors are invited to not only follow the narrative, but also shape it, being aware of the fluidity between moments of clarity and uncertainty as to the function and arrangement of the objects presented.
