BORIS ONDREICKA / EDEK BARTZ
CURATORS TALK ABOUT HELMUT LANG
Why does a famous fashion designer like Helmut Lang change his artistic area of activity and switch to fine art? What differentiates the work of a designer from that of a fine artist? What is it that connects fashion and sculpture? Was Helmut Lang´s work always more than fashion? Where is the boundary between fine and applied art, and does their separation even make any sense? EDEK BARTZ – musician, cultural manager and curator – and BORIS ONDREIČKA – curator, artist and author – personalities who are known for their multidisciplinary thinking and working across boundaries, speak about Helmut Lang and his artistic development.
