Together with CCHA/Culture Centre Hasselt, Hasselt Fashion Museum explores the imagination of children, youth, youthfulness and all other kinds of socio-cultural constructs and connotations of youth and youthfulness in the present and the past at the interface between fashion and photography. Today's contemporary ‘youthquake’ forms the starting point for this challenging double exhibition that addressing topics including but not limited to Integrity, gender, youth culture as a source of inspiration and eternal youth.
With the exhibition Forever YOUNG, Hasselt Fashion Museum taps into a topical subject. Youth, identity, and gender are much-discussed in our modern-day society. Within the world of fashion, where the young audience becomes the number one reference, it is a hot topic too. Youthful influencers and childlike mini-me’s are omnipresent. Social media such as Instagram play a crucial role in this trend.
The exhibition is part of the double exhibition, ‘forever YOUNG forever’, in collaboration with the CCHA/Hasselt Cultural Centre.
