The Hoodie at Het Nieuwe Instituut | Until 23/08/2020︎︎︎

I participated in The Hoodie at Het Nieuwe Instituut. This exhibition explores the meaning of the hoodie through different media, combining digital footage, artworks, printed matter and other content formats with garments. The works displayed trace the evolution of this piece of clothing from 1930s workwear — popularised by Champion — to icon of streetwear, whilst exploring the social connotations of a garment, which depend on the age, gender, ethnicity and geography of the wearer, and are also affected by the prejudices and politics of the viewer.
