Right when the long-awaited weekend is just around the corner, we assemble and (of course) share several news that are on our mind and keep us on our toes. So, let the weekend beginn!
ON Fräuleins Mind
N°21 x 7 For All Mankind
High fashion meets premium denim – the Capsule Collection plays with proportions and surprises with unexpected details. Defined by a genderless aesthetic, the collection offers a new look at silhouettes and celebrates inclusivity and togetherness with a sustainable approach.
“The contrast between the aesthetic of N°21 and the Californian attitude of the 7 For All Mankind brand is, in my opinion, the strength of this partnership, which brings together two different worlds in perfect harmony. Functionality, respect for the brand’s heritage and unexpected details are the standout features of the Capsule Collection.” – Alessandro Dell’Acqua, Founder and Creative Director of N°21

Ancient crafts and contemporary art will be brought together in a new dialogue.
The galleries Anahita – Arts of Asia and Anahita Contemporary will become a place for interactive encounters and opportunities to explore issues of diversity, culture and empowerment . Nomadic textile art was produced exclusively by women. As such , the history of nomadic art is also a history of strong women . The rediscovery of nomadic art and its creators should strengthen the women’s movement and serve as a powerful counterbalance to historic stereotypes of Muslim women. S*HEROES focuses on traditional crafts , show casi ng their influence on modern art and design and raises awareness for creative, authentic production processes and sustainable lifestyles. More than 20 international artists and cultural workers are participating in the project. Among them are a new generation of “nomads” like Yumna Al – Arashi, Tahmineh Monzavi, Neda Saeedi, Sepideh Ahadi, Mathilda Rejouan Berndt or Yalda Yazdani as well as German and international artists like Stella Meris, Rebecca Pokua Korang, Laure d’Utruy, Dieter Detzner, Kalpesh Lathigra, Studio Jeschkelanger and Pablo Alonso. Through the curation of the artists and exhibits, the intergenerational, interdisci plinary and intercultural approach of the exhibition becomes clear.
