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.

The Vulgar: Fashion Redefined

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.
