- RegistrationNo registration required
- PriceFree Admission
What is fashion? What do we say about ourselves when we get dressed? And where does the desire for staging and self-expression come from? Katja Eichinger explores these and other fashion questions in her collection of essays "Mode und andere Neurosen" (Aufbau Verlag 2020). At the book premiere in April, the author will talk with designer Lutz Huelle about the wide field of tension between fashion and its manifestations – a topic that finds expression at Museum Brandhorst with artists such as Alexandra Bircken and Seth Price.
Katja Eichinger, who also works as a photographer and music producer, has been observing the phenomenon of fashion and its contemporary changes for many years; Lutz Huelle has been working as a designer since the 1990s. He has been internationally acclaimed in recent years with his collections for the LUTZ HUELLE label and presented his first collection in autumn 2019 as Creative Director of Delpozo.
The two are not only connected by biographical parallels: They were born in the late 1960s and early 1970s in the heart of West Germany and studied and lived in London in the late 1990s – the city of punk and post-punk, of pop culture and fashion business. With wit and a willingness to deconstruct, they operate at the interface of high fashion and subcultural phenomena, thus opening our eyes to the social and political aspects of fashion – and not least to the longing for self-worth and uniqueness in the digital age.
6:30 PM | Doors open
7:00 PM | Talk
The event takes place in the foyer of the museum. Seats are limited. The book shop is open.

CANCELED | The dark side of Pop Art
The Pop Art artists, especially Andy Warhol, glorified the icons of pop culture and were the first to show consumer goods and the products of the mass media in art. At the same time, their works also addressed the downside of capitalism and consumer culture, such as the obsession with superficialities. The tour shows how Pop Art could become, at one and the same time, a phenomenon of both mass culGo to the event
CANCELED | Between identity politics and collective neurosis – Art and society from Andy Warhol to Damien Hirst
Since the 1960s many artists have addressed questions of identity in their works, with reference to skin color, sexual orientation or social class. They celebrate these identities, but also make discrimination visible. Together we look at artworks that focus on the theme of identity and contrast them with pieces that examine the desire for optimization and the collective neuroses of our performancGo to the event
