M°BA 13

a journey into fetishism with lidewij edelkoort


A trip into the changes to come. Lidewij Edelkoort is pleased to welcome you in Arnhem for an inspiring international seminar on Tuesday June 25 and Wednesday June 26, to meet with creative thinkers and designers from around the world and discuss fashion, design, branding and culture. Being commissioned to curate the fifth edition of M°BA (Mode Biennale Arnhem), following the newest undercurrents in society and style, Edelkoort decided to analyze and to decrypt our collective obsession with fashion through the idea of fetishism. To share the fascinating research, to deepen its comprehension and how it can relate to our professions.

In the seminar, Lidewij Edelkoort will headline a selection of acclaimed speakers including fashion historian Dominique Fallecker, psychologists Dr. Iki Freud and Dr. Dawid Wiener, photographer Ruud van der Peijl, milliner Little Shilpa, designer Faye Toogood, curators Angelos Tsourapas and Vassilis Zidianakis, fashion designer Kosuke Tsumura and sexual anthropologist Betony Vernon, concluding with a special ceremonial session by shaman Daan van Kampenhout.

A trip that will fuel creativity in our minds and to discover amazing talents.
