Kunsthaus Graz Universalmuseum Joanneum

Curated by Katrin Bucher Trantow, Peter Pakesch

The latest product of Berlin and Paris-based fashion duo BLESS is N°41. It’s home, it’s house, it’s shop, it’s museum, it’s collection, it’s exhibition. Crammed full and theatrical, it consists of useful objects like a Workoutcomputer and Wallscrewhangers. It’s seen in topview, bottom view or even backwards. Everything – even the museum – is checked out for its everyday serviceability, stripped bare or dressed up, and is in a state of constant change. N°41 revolves around giving ordinary life a makeover. It asks why particular things are ordered the way they are, and seeks to establish where products start and stop.
