Claudia Skoda
Fashion, Photographs, Films, Music and Performance

30.10.2020 to 21.02.2021

With her fashion designs, Claudia Skoda (born 1943) was a key figure and icon of the Berlin underground scene of the 1970s and 1980s. Her designs revolutionised our understanding of knitwear, while her performance-like fashion shows, such as Big Birds (1979), Trommelfeuer (1980), Dressater (1988) and Deep Diving for Whales (1997) garnered her international attention.

Her first solo exhibition will include fashion, some 200 photographs, films, and music by artists such as Martin Kippenberger, Luciano Castelli, Salomé, Jim Rakete, Ulrike Ottinger, Silke Grossmann, Manuel Göttsching, Kraftwerk, and many others. Alongside her collections, their production and distribution, the exhibition will also take a look at her commune Fabrikneu, her fashion shows and studio outlets, her time in New York, as well as Skoda’s social networks and her collaborations with a whole range of artists.

A special exhibition of the Kunstbibliothek in cooperation with the Kunstgewerbemuseum – Staatliche Museen zu Berlin
