Scratching the Surface – Part 2

Brief & Outcome: Book & Exhibition looking into the topic of visual taste and how it affects humans on various levels on a global scale.

The exhibition depicted the journey through various research fields and a few excerpts of the findings within visual taste, aesthetics, perception and culture. Five examples of how taste affects us on many levels were provided as artefacts. Every story tried to illustrate how many layers one has to consider when judging a phenomena that seems superficial at first sight. One of the stories – LeSapeurs in the Congo – are not just driven by fashion, but we do find a whole ideology and political angles behind it, which the exhibition aimed to reveal.
