Bernhard Willhelm 3000: When Fashion Shows The Danger Then Fashion Is The Danger
Bernhard Willhelm 3000: When Fashion Shows The Danger Then Fashion Is The Danger
Feb 7, 2015-May 17, 2015

Since 1999, when he premiered his first collection of clothes in Paris, Bernhard Willhelm has been “moving in-between chaos and diversity.” He and his team, headed by long-term collaborator Jutta Kraus, recently decamped from their Parisian atelier and relocated to Los Angeles. Bernhard Willhelm 3000 at MOCA Pacific Design Center functions as a sculptural installation with a fashion sensibility and includes video, photography, and displays of objects selected by Willhelm. Described by Willhelm as a meditation on the future of commerce and a “thinking-forward exhibition,” he sees this installation as his response to the uniformity of fashion in the 21st century and a forecast of the fashion experience in the 22nd century. The exhibition is organized by Emma Reeves, Project Coordinator.
