BOOK
Erni Mangold reads Elfriede Gerstl
Image2012|03|13

For the Viennese writer Elfriede Gerstl, clothes were an everlasting life issue. In one of her books, entitled Kleiderflug, she remembers about garments worn and unfortunately displaced or lost during years of travel and relocation. The book, written in 1995, has still the contemporary power of the present, as clothes are infused with that magical and elusive something we all know too well ourselves. Fashion is very much a poetical and lyrical language, and Elfriede proves this just right. The book reading, conducted by Erni Mangold, should be an unforgettable treat!

Start: 18:30

EXHIBITION
Hyères 2012 Photo Selection
Image Being chosen to feature in the Hyères Fashion and Photo Festival is a huge honour. The exhibition, praised for its talent-uncovering abilities has, as always, received hundreds of applications from determined photographers, but only a mere fraction of them could make it to the final round. The ten extremely talented artists who are to be a part of the 27th edition of the festival have been picked by art professionals of the highest calibre, and it shows. The chosen few are Olga Cafiero (Italy), Jessica Eaton (Canada), Richard Kolker (GB), Namsa Leuba (Switzerland), Florian van Roekel (Netherlands), Akira Somekawa (Japan), Brea Souders (USA), Yasuyuki Takagi (Japan), Manuel Vazquez (Spain) and the wonderfully gifted Vienna-born Hanna Putz. We know who our vote (and heart) would go to!

EXHIBITION
The Total Look
Image2012|02|26 - 05|20

Leave it to the MOCA to organise an exhibition like no other! Their most recent venture documents the relationship between three talented people whose interconnected lives led to an artistic collaboration to be remembered. The exhibit displays photographs of the fashion designs by the great Vienna-born Rudi Gernreich, worn by his muse Peggy Moffitt and shot by William Claxton. The photos, full of energy and style, feature clothes from the 60s and 70s, but could not appear more contemporary. The ageless feel of Gernreich’s designs is captured in images representing fashion, art and friendship, making one thing clear- fashion never really goes out of fashion!

EXHIBITION
Wearing Skirts
Image2012|02|18 - 2012|06|10

Getting dressed has always been a ritual with a deeper meaning, one far beyond that of simply covering the body. Clothes are, and always will be, a medium of expression and an extension of our own personalities. Looking into this intriguing nature of fashion, the ways in which it is constructed, manipulated and used to construct identity, the Museum der Moderne Salzburg has created an exhibition focusing on the way clothes are staged in contemporary photography. The exhibit includes photographs by artists including Andrea Lumplecker (Wearing Skirts) or Peter Köllerer (Architectures of Desire), as well sculptures by Erwin Wurm. The concepts of uniformity, historicism and culture in relation to clothes will also be explored, so if you’re wondering how clothes make the man, this is where you find out!
