Item description for Mode 2001: Landed-Geland Part I (Vol 1) by Michel Bauwens, Takeji Hirakawa, Denis Laurent, Luc Derycke & Walter van Beirendonck...
Antwerp=Fashion=Culture=Mode 2001=Landed-Geland. This equation stands for the cosmopolitan, idiosyncratic, fascinating, and stimulating event that was "Landed-Geland", a six-month, citywide, multimedia extravaganza that recently colored and clothed the city of Antwerp in the name of fashion. Twenty five rotating billboards displayed 75 radical images by international designers; the exhibit "Mutilate?" examined the phenomenon of fashion from an ethnic and historical perspective; another exhibit, "2 Women", examined Gabrielle Chang and Rei Kawakubo, two maverick designers of indisputable importance; and 300 interviewees were asked the question: "What was your most intense emotion ever as regards fashion?" And here is the catalog, divided into two parts, with Part I providing all of the fascinating conceptual framework, and Part II vivid and complete photographic documentation of the exhibit that temporarily changed the look of Antwerp. Edited, introduction and interviews by Walter Van Beirendonck & Luc Derycke. Interviews by Steven Jones, Rei Kawakubo, Mr. Pearl and Takeji Hirakawa.
