the fashion show of heroic sovereigns, trousers, burkas, and bikinis: 15 female artists wear their interpretations of freedom of the body.

 

on the runway: trousers, burkas, and bikinis. the fashion show of heroic sovereigns subverts fashion clichés and casts new light on the debate over burkas. here and now – growing up in miniskirts and bikinis, toying with the latest diets and cosmetic surgery, the idea of the veil seems like a provocative gesture of liberation. and the finale: trousers for those who pee standing up. am i a fashion victim or a trendsetter?
