Visions & Fashion
This special Visions & Fashion exhibition at Berlin’s Kulturforum lets the visitor relive fashion and its history from 1980 to today with the help of artistic pictures. Alongside photos by Peter Lindbergh, Lorenzo Mattotti, Sarah Moon, Helmut Newton and Rico Puhlmann, five works created by Florian Böhm in 2008 for the multi-award-winning Collectors’ Book of the Nymphenburg Porcelain Manufactory are also on show.
Florian Böhm’s exhibited photo interiors provide an insight into the studios of Emanuel Ungaro, Vivienne Westwood and Gareth Pugh. Born in 1969 with homes in both Munich and New York, the photographer captures those places where abstract ideas become tangible designs: while Ungaro’s studio is fully draped with materials, the workplace of Igor Chapurin is decorated with all kinds of houseplants which obviously inspire the “Dior of Moscow”.
The photos belong to an omnibus of motifs with which Florian Böhm portrays the 16 fashion designers taking part in the couture edition (a remake of Bustelli’s Commedia dell’ Arte), and which are component parts of the documentation of the project for the Nymphenburg’s Collectors’ Book.
Visions & Fashion Exhibition: 30 June to 9 October, Kunstbibliothek, Kulturforum Potsdamer Platz, Matthäikirchplatz entrance, Berlin, Germany
