Friday, 5 October 2018 to Saturday, 12 January 2019

Fashion Space Gallery, at London College of Fashion, University of the Arts London, is proud to
present Comme des Marxists, an exhibition of Austrian born New York based artist Rainer Ganahl’s
ongoing investigations into the relationships between daily life, culture, economic systems and
political structures.

Presented for the first time in the UK, the exhibition will showcase Ganahl’s contemporary analysis
of how capitalism works, injecting humor and drawing connections between class struggle, politics,
design, and consumerism.
Commissioned by Fashion Space Gallery, the exhibition curated by Centre for Sustainable Fashion’s
Camilla Palestra, in celebration of their 10th anniversary, examines how fashion and art can be a
political force for change.

Artist ( Description ): 

“My work on Comme des Marxists addresses social realities expressed through the
medium of fashion alongside my mind set as an artist. I am naturally interested in social
relationships that deal with class, power, gender, race, education and technology.

Visitors can expect to see in London what I exhibited at White Columns in NYC in 2013,
but this show is much more exciting as it will be displayed in a fashion context and not
exclusively as art. As much as I see myself as an artist and not a fashion designer, I would
love to create a fashion line that embraces my concept for the future of fashion. One that
anticipates flooded cities in which the lower part of the outfit protects us from poisoned
waters and the upper part protects us from lethal boiling radiation.”
