About the

February 23–October 6, 2024

The Kunsthalle München presents the first major retrospective on Dutch fashion artists Viktor&Rolf in Germany. For more than three decades, Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren have been exploring with breathtaking virtuosity the boundaries between the worlds of haute couture and art. Celebrated for their unconventional approach to design, their creations have been embraced by artists such as Madonna, Tilda Swinton, Lady Gaga, Doja Cat, and Cardi B and were staged in numerous ballets, as well as an opera directed by Robert Wilson. Reflecting the duo’s passions, obsessions and singular vision, the spectacular scenography showcases more than 100 of their most daring creations—many exhibited for the first time—along with numerous videos, sketches, the timeless fragrances like Flowerbomb and Spicebomb, porcelain dolls dressed in the designers’ iconic creations, and photographs by renowned visual artists like Andreas Gursky, Ellen von Unwerth and Herb Ritts.

The exhibition is developed by the Kunsthalle München in collaboration with the Canadian curator Thierry-Maxime Loriot. He also curated the extraordinary exhibitions Jean Paul Gaultier. From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk (2015), Peter Lindbergh. From Fashion to Reality (2017), and Thierry Mugler. Couturissime (2020/21) which met with great critical and public success in Munich.

Viktor&Rolf. Fashion Statements is organized by the Kunsthalle München and curated by Thierry-Maxime Loriot in collaboration with Maison Viktor&Rolf and L’Oréal Luxe.
