We are interested in the relationship between clothing and identity. As symbol of identity in this edition we present a blown up image of the first child passport of our dear friend and great fashion designer Ayzit Bostan. She was 4 years old when it was made on the occasion of her departure to Germany, where she still lives and works.
Born in 1968 in Ankara, Turkey, Ayzit Bostan lives and works in Munich, Germany. In addition to her women's wear collections, she designs bags for the leather goods company BREE and works as a costume designer for movies and theatres. Her fashion performances and installations have been shown at various cultural institutions including the MMK Frankfurt, Kunstverein München and the MaximiliansForum Munich. Recently one of her bags was nominated for the Design Award of the Federal Republic of Germany.
