imaginary bodies - fashion, body and space

Lecture by Prof. Lars Paschke


Lecture by Prof. Lars Paschke on imaginary bodies - fashion, body and space.

The lecture takes place in the context of the exhibition Klára Hosnedlová. To Infinity with Alexander Wilmschen, co-curator of the exhibition.

After studying at the Fashion Academy in Antwerp, Lars Paschke worked on numerous interdisciplinary projects in the fields of fashion and visual arts, as well as jewellery and costume design. To the interdisciplinary collaborations he adds a fashion-specific way of working that combines explorations of material culture and body politics with contemporary aesthetics and technical skills. He explores the creative dialogue that results from this collaborative practice and renegotiates the role of fashion designers in a contemporary political and social environment. Lars Paschke has held a professorship in fashion design at Burg Giebichenstein Kunsthochschule Halle since March 2021.

For her first institutional solo exhibition, Klára Hosnedlová metamorphoses the Kestner Gesellschaft’s halls into labyrinthian interiorities, laboriously modeling spatialities of voyeuristic surfaces—oblique mirrors of humanoid selves. Her monumental performative sculptures, suspended like clouds of opaque matter, are incubators of corporeal poetry, generous habitats for miniature images of a fragmented, post-industrial world at the brink of exhaustion.

Born in 1990 in Uherské Hradiště, Czech Republic, Klára Hosnedlová attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague (2009–2016) and is currently pursuing her doctoral studies at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Brno. She lives and works in Berlin.
