How do contemporary fashion designers and artists challenge beauty ideals? Can clothing protect us mentally and give us strength? The exhibition at MoMu puts our personal experience of our bodies centre stage. An unexpected and surprising dialogue between art installations and avant-garde fashion highlights such themes as body dysmorphia, the layered meanings and history of human replicas, such as dolls and mannequins, and the symbiosis between art, fashion and technology in the form of cyborgs and avatars.

MoMu presents the work of artists such as Ed Atkins, Genesis Belanger, Hans Bellmer, Genieve Figgis, Mike Kelley, Sarah Lucas, Paul McCarthy, Melik Ohanian, Tschabalala Self, Cindy Sherman and Yasuyuki Ueno, in dialogue with creations by designers such as Balenciaga, Hussein Chalayan, Comme des Garçons, Molly Goddard, Kenneth Ize, Loewe, Issey Miyake, Noir Kei Ninomiya, Prada, Simone Rocha and Walter Van Beirendonck.
