A truly mesmerising installation put on by the Jan Arnold Gallery at the MQ invites a contemporary dialogue about the social and political structure of our society. With fashion pieces by FCKU FSHN- Kevin Klein’s non-commercial designs, and Olivier Hölzl’s video works presented as an artistic statement on the international arms industry, the exhibition moves within the context of visual manipulation. Utterly interactively, it makes the visitors become a part of it all via a twisted economic exchange, so if you want to witness something out of the ordinary, this is the place!
