About This Item: 
The Austrian artist Ines Doujak presents her highly unusual fashion collections Citing and at the same time calling into question the glamour of the fashion world, Doujak's works are characterized both by their determined criticism and their beauty The artist brings into play the exploitative structures and the gender and class order hardwired into haute couture and the garment industry and deliberately blurs the demarcation line separating fashion statement and art The focus is on textile workers burnt to death in their factories, on total exhaustion as the lot of men and women in the low-wage sector, on dirty secrets, animal and human skins, Carnival and masquerade, drugs, war and the devil himself Motifs and themes are directly inscribed on the textiles as carrier material Fabrics, patterns, garments and accessories as well as texts, publications, objects, videos, dance interludes and pieces of music deal with the links between fashion, colonialism and globalized relations of production Exhibition: W├╝rttembergische Kunstverein, Stuttgart, Germany (15.10.2016 - 15.01.2017) / Lentos Kunstmuseum, Linz, Austria (2.2 - 21.5.2018)
