Katharina Sand will guide you through the exhibition and give an insight into the curatorial concept behind "Making FASHION Sense".

The exhibition showcases the radical transformation of fashion through technology. Robot arms and mixed reality, holograms and drones have all paraded down international catwalks. Making FASHION Sense focuses on the impact of technology upon creative processes in the fashion industry, as well as on artistic paths leading towards increasing sustainability: Fashion which makes sense.

Experiencing fashion ranges from spiritual solace to discomfort. Garments can enforce uniformity or foster artistic expression. How do programmable garments express our bodies? Can fashion technology reorient not only our gestures, our wellbeing, our experience of others, but also our creative perspectives? Can fashion shelter us from others, from a dystopian future, or is it distorting the collective notions of ourselves? 

These artists and designers create fashion that - by using technology - is not only transforming silhouettes, but production systems. Based on sustainable production ethics, they create new fashion semantics with a deeper purpose.
