The human skin is a wondrous thing; it protects the body, keeps it warm and safe from injuries, cold and wetness. But for many it is also a special feature signalising beauty and attractiveness. So it is no wonder that artists and designers speak of the second skin when talking about clothes and fashion, something a new exhibition at the museum Sinclair Haus focuses on. No matter how protective clothes are, they are always ways to express our identity, our personality and how we want others to see ourselves. This is why it is no longer only in focus of fashion designers, but also in that of contemporary artists, many of whom now focus on natural materials as part of their working process.
