TRAPHOLT - Museum of Modern Art, Applied Art, Design and Architecture has invited the world's leading trend forecaster Lidewij Edelkoort to curate the exhibition Fetishism. Obsessions in Fashion & Design. An exhibition that addresses how design and fashion question why we have a personal connection to certain materials and objects.

 

Lidewij Edelkoort has defined 10 themes which she thinks have a touch of fetishism to them - from nudism to infantilism, spiritualism, shamanism and consumerism. 100 of the most influential designers in the global design scene have contributed with creations corresponding one of the 10 themes.

 

Trapholt Museum director, Ms. Karen Grøn, says:"Edelkoort focuses on the fact that we increasingly use design as a fetish to link up with an increasingly uncertain world. Much of our desires and obsessions stem from our childhood and are later developed into a fascination for example, lingerie, leather, velour or shoes. We create fetishes by the choices we make, and thus we connect to the world around us." (read more...)
