Positive Extremism














1. Comme des Garçons Homme Plus Spring/Summer 2015
2. John Galliano Fall/Winter 1997
3. Collier Schorr Base Portraits/Barracks, 2005

Straight pacifism. The most admirable beings united. Rei, Raf, Collier. Nipster fashion for the pre-digital, post-digital age. Those of us you live analogue digially. In Real Life. In Real Love. On- and offline.

13. Raf Simons/Sterling Ruby Fall/Winter 2014

The Raf Sandior universe is a hermeneutic one. Like father, like son. Or like 'Fathers Fathers' and 'Abus(ive) Lang(uage)'. And as we know, this letter similitude is no coincidence. What would father say?

3. Ed Atkins Warm, Warm, Warm Spring Mouths, 2013
4. Bruce Nauman Studies For Hologram, 1970

An exhibition of beauty that seeks international comparison. Juxtaposing the old master with the young master. Video experiments with the self (Nauman) and a 3D-modelled self (Atkins). 1968-2013. Poetic, disgusting, sentimental.

Drawn Faces Fight



1. Jan Lehner No Colours Anymore, I Want Them To Turn Black, 2014
2. Pablo Picasso Untitled, 1945

Looking back to the beginnings and discovering the category The Fight. Visual analogies that built the foundation of this aesthetic commentary. And let's face it, everything else is travesty. Yet, one could always wear Alex Bottenberg.

Denudity




Hood By Air Fall/Winter 2014

Remove the three letters, ignore the branding and the sportswear stripes. Take the pieces that no one dares to buy. Remove your clothes. Let the thoughts behind those garments uncover you.
