DIE ZWEITE HAUT
The skin surrounds the human body and initially serves to protect against the outside world, against cold, wetness and injury. In addition to this function
as a protective, embracing sheath, the skin simultaneously permits an interaction between individual and environment. Clothes are known as the “second skin”
and can assume its functions as a selectively permeable barrier. Clothing can protect, cover or transport the inside outwards in the form of adornment and
decoration, acting as an expression of individual or cultural identity. It is this symbiotic relationship between skin, clothes and environment that ensures its
growing importance as a focal point for contemporary art. Artists increasingly integrate organic raw material and creatural substances in their work.
They tailor clothes from flowers, beetles, leaves, fish and branches, which – expressed as sculptural objects, photographs and paintings – allude to
the creational myth of clothes: Adam and Eve, having just tasted the apple, caught in sudden awareness of their nudity and covering themselves with fig leaves.
The exhibition at the Museum Sinclair-Haus examines and illustrates what is meant by climbing inside one’s second skin – simultaneously fusing with and separating from nature.

The Human Figure in Contemporary Art
Roger Malbert is Senior Curator, Hayward Touring at the Hayward Gallery, London, and has now released the book 'Drawing People'.
The book is a thoughtful and beautifully illustrated survey of the most compelling and inventive drawings of the human form being produced today.

Chapters on Body, Self, Personal Lives, Social Reality and Fictions include short introductions outlining each theme, followed by commentaries on
individual artists exploring their style, ideas and techniques, accompanied by finely reproduced images of their recent work.
