To 14 clock for the first public tour of the new special exhibition "Fashion Material - fashion worlds by Stephan Hann" in the spinning mill of the textile plant Bocholt.

The exhibition looks from a new perspective on materiality, design language and aesthetics. Whether from champagne corks, telephone book pages, advertising posters or antique lace - the choice of materials underlines the short-lived fashion in the present time, while the selected cuts and shapes are timeless.
