For “Fetishism. Obsessions in Fashion & Design” Lidewij Edelkoort has defined 10 themes which she thinks have a touch of fetishism to them. The exhibition illustrates with spectacular garments and intriguing design objects collected around the world, exposing an overwhelming creativity of a new generation of experimental designers who in their works lustfully reuse references from nature, religion, anthropology, society and history, thus building a bridge to a future common consciousness.
A group of influential designers in the global design scene have contributed with creations corresponding one of the 10 themes.
Curated by Lidewij Edelkoort, Philip Fimmano and Willem Schenk, the exhibition features more than 100 creations, including fashion by Iris van Herpen, Walter van Beirendonck, Rick Owens, Undercover and Phoebe Philo for Céline; as well as design by Pepe Heykoop, Judith van den Boom, Front, Maarten Baas, Studio Job, Kiki van Eijk, Marcel Wanders, Fabio Novembre, Jaime Hayon, Bokja, Bertjan Pot, Fernando & Humberto Campana, Christien Meindertsma and Claudy Jongstra.
