Temporary Fashion Museum

Het Nieuwe Instituut

Exhibition | Fashion & Textile

From September 13, 2015 until 8 May, 2016 Het Nieuwe Instituut will be transformed into a Temporary Fashion Museum, exploring the phenomenon of fashion in all its surprising forms with an extensive programme of exhibitions, installations, performances and events.

The Temporary Fashion Museum will give visitors an opportunity to engage with fashion in different ways: from debating about and reflecting upon on essential issues to trying on and buying clothes. For example, the negative social and ecological impacts of clothing production are the starting point for an examination of the usually unseen darker side of fashion.

In contrast to the conventional model of a museum, which conserves objects and thus freezes time, the Temporary Fashion Museum will approach time as fashion does: as a fluid and flowing phenomenon and a source for speculation.
