With Anna-Sophie Berger, the MAK branch showcases an artist working across different media. A concern with fashion theory has been integral to her work for years. Her engagement with the subject of fashion and time draws from Walter Benjamin’s concept of history, which is founded on his observations of contemporary fashion, as well as from Elizabeth Wilson’s examination of fashion and modernity in Adorned with Dreams (1985). In the Biedermeier ensemble, Berger stages garment pieces from the Fashion is Fast collection, with which she concluded her fashion studies at the University of Applied Arts Vienna, her artistic works, and pieces from the MAK Collection and the Theatermuseum, thereby probing the genre boundaries of art and design.
