The Curatorial Project: UNLABEL – Fashion Beyond Categorization

24 May - 29 Sep 2019 / Toni-Areal of the Museum für Gestaltung Zürich, Pfingstweidstrasse 96, Zurich, CH

Clothes make the man or woman: it has been a very long time since people wrapped themselves in fabric to merely cover their bodies or protect themselves against the elements. Fashion has always been a means of self-presentation, of differentiation, as well as a projection surface for social constructs. The understanding of ‘gender’ is therefore subject to social, political and cultural attributions.
