The two expositions this show has started with are the Reflecting Fashion exposition and the Technosensual. The first one has presented the art and fashion from the modern age of mumok. It is mainly concentrated on fashion as an essential part of the art. This has been demostarted even since the early ages of 1960 by designers such as Vito Acconci or Daniel Buren.
