BEAUTY & BEATS
Exhibition: Opening of the exhibition Sagmeister & Walsh: Beauty
After the great success of his Happy Show, Stefan Sagmeister, the New York-based superstar of graphic design, returns to the Museum of Applied Arts in 2019. Together with his studio partner Jessica Walsh, the new exhibition project Beauty provides a very personal, visually impressive plea for the pleasure of beauty. To kick off the exhibition, we take the visitors* to the Night of the Museums on a sensually pleasurable search for the question: What is beauty and why do we feel attracted to it?
Exhibition: Contemporary Muslim Fashions
From haute couture to streetwear to sportswear: The market for Muslim fashion is growing rapidly worldwide. Contemporary Muslim Fashions is the first major exhibition to deal with the phenomenon of contemporary Muslim fashion. After the show caused a sensation at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, it will be shown in Frankfurt as the first stop in Europe. Visitors* are immersed in snapshots of current Muslim clothing styles from around the world, with a focus on the Middle East and Southeast Asia as well as Europe and the USA.
