kleid im kontext

Natalia Solo-Matine, Genève

Kleid im Kontext, meaning Clothing in Context, is a newly opened exhibit that explores just that. It examines the evolution of clothes in our society compared to our lifestyles, habits, bodies, and needs. Through scenic installations and film sequences that interact and contrast with the garments, fashion is dissected in its many forms, from everyday-wear to the artistic expressions of conceptual design. Kleid im Context is ultimately showcasing fashion as changeable and changing. Thus, the 30 Swiss designers who have created pieces for the exhibit have designed a welcome collection of garments that transcend seasonal rhythms and conventional rules. There are many events and tours guided by the curators and designers of the exhibit throughout the exhibit's run. For a full schedule, see the Gewerbemuseum site.
