The 2000s have seen significant changes in the fashion world, including our understanding of clothing as we use it today. This is the driver behind the exhibition “The Overworked Body: An Anthology of 2000s Dress” showcasing changes in clothing. The exhibition continues until 15 October 2017. The exhibition has big ambitions, although they are clearly defined. It aims to review and then pause to capture the diversity and scope of development in fashion. Fashion industry processes during this decade have been and continue to be complex: the outsourcings of industry and changes in consumer behaviour have been followed by developments towards short product cycles and globally uniform tastes. Clothing technology and production processes are booming, and as a result, there has been a phenomenal increase in the variety of individual expression and the intermixing of subcultural styles. However, high fashion and haute couture nonetheless continue to play decisive roles and are firmly established as mediums of expression. This range is intended to present a cross-section of a decade saturated with fashion. The exhibition attempts to make these processes clearer and visible. Among things such as installations, exhibited magazines and displays to convey its ideas, the exhibition also has a catwalk for fashion shows and performances. Ludlow 38 is an exhibition space in New York that operates along the models of German art associations. Since 2008, Mini and the Goethe Institute have supported curatorial residencies, and one has been offered to a young German curator every year since 2011. The motivation is to connect art and culture on an international level and encourage a dialogue with the United States. This exhibition is a collaboration between Saim Demircan and Matthew Linde and is also shown at the Mathew Gallery.
