"Jil Sander. Präsens" 4 November 2017 to 6 May 2018 at the Museum Angewandte Kunst


Jil Sander is one of the most influential fashion designers of her generation. Her first solo exhibition ever to take place in a museum will consist of large-scale, multi-media installations and tableaus devoted to the impact of her design approach on the aesthetics, material and form of fashion and product design, architecture and garden art.

The presentation, which could hardly be more multifaceted, will showcase the ingenuity and creative power of a designer whose aim is to bring out a person’s personality. Jil Sander’s fame is synonymous with her “modern mission”. And modern for her is a design which impowers the individual. Thus, the exhibition centers on a crucial question: What is the key to quality in design?
