The Hoodie

Exhibition

01 Dec 2019 — 12 Apr 2020

The hoodie is a staple of contemporary dress, hyped as a trend and a must-have item; but elsewhere it is also a topic of moral panic, banned by certain institutions and dissected by the media as an emblem of inequality, crime or deviancy.Curated by writer and curator Lou Stoppard.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the publication of What Would a Non-Sexist City Be Like? Speculations on Housing, Urban Design, and Human Work (Signs, 1980). This essay, by American architect and architecture historian Dolores Hayden, became a major influence on feminist thinking about design, construction, living and gender. In it, Hayden argues that architectural design and urban planning limit women's position in society, and investigates radical alternatives that could faciliate a more equal role.

Decentering the Institution. Challenges, Mistakes & Responsibilities

The Hoodie Unravelled

Fri 20 Mar 2020, 19:30 — 21:30

The concepts of diversity and inclusiveness have come to the fore in recent years, yet we have seen little or no structural change in the staffing of cultural institutions. We do, however, see an increasing number of cultural institutions attempting to attract new target groups (IE young audiences with migrant backgrounds) by means of countless, but always only temporary, innovations. What are the implications of this? Whose lived experiences are put in the spotlight, and who benefits from them?
