“Art and fashion? A forced marriage, marriage of convenience, love marriage? Are the two in cahoots? Art and fashion share a conceptual interest. They are about the same thing: making conventions conscious, which, once exhibited, become playful, funny, crazy and displaced. Both ironize, throw over, question. Both create artful spaces through iridescent lighting effects, plays of light and shadow, both give the moment an ever-surprising form.”
Guest lecture on October 2, 2023, 6 p.m.
at ZERO House, Hüttenstrasse 104, 2015 Düsseldorf, Germany.
Unconventional, challenging, and with verve, Barbara Vinken, Professor of General Literary Studies and Romance Philology at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich , writes about the subject of fashion. Time and again, she examines the role of fashion in our modern society and comes up with surprising results. For the ZERO foundation, the renowned literary expert (3 Sat “Buchzeit”) analyzes the so far completely unexplored topic of “ZERO and fashion” following the exhibition “Ein Kleid, monochrom”.
The essay accompanying Barbara Vinken’s lecture will be published in 2024 in the series “Hatje Cantz Text” by Hatje Cantz Verlag, Berlin.
