Sample




An extraordinary fashion show of

CLAUDIA SKODA and TABEA BLUMENSCHEIN

at Kongresshalle Berlin
(now Haus der Kulturen der Welt, HKW).

Ignoring the classic "catwalk" style
the sculptor JÜRGEN SKODA (Claudia's husband)
built a dark room with red wire fences
which formed
cages
in which the models presented the pieces of
Claudia's and Tabea's 1979 collection

behaving like birds!

The fences kept the audience in distance whilst

SALOME and LUCIANO CASTELLI as "GEILE TIERE"
roamed the space
together with TWO BIRDS from Paraguay

to the stunning sound collage "BIG BIRDS"
written for this show and performed live by

MANUEL GÖTTSCHING .




This film is part of the multimedia show

"DRESSED TO THRILL"

to honour Claudia's live achievment as a fashion designer
at Kunstbibliothek of Kunstforum Berlin
(from 2020/12 to 2021/4)
