November 2 - November 20, 2021

This autumn the launch of A/part in collaboration with Flanders DC will set the spotlights on the retail and fashion industry in Antwerp: 20 unique products will be temporarily available in 20 shops in Antwerp. They will be the result of 20 unique collaborations between established and upcoming talents in fashion, art, music, film ànd retail.
According to curator and multi-talent Baloji, A/part has nothing less than once-in-a-lifetime collabs and surprisingly original products in store.

‘Fashion 2.021’ is filling the city with fashion culture and reaching even the most unexpected places.

‘E/MOTION – Fashion in Transition’ explores the way in which fashion is an expression of emotion, fear and desire in society: fashion is both ‘emotional’ and ‘in motion’. With this exhibition, MoMu is looking back on the events of the past three decades and asking questions about how fashion can reinvent itself as an industry, as well as the role that fashion designers can play in this in the future.

Fashion 2.021 across
all of Antwerp

'Fashion 2.021 Antwerp – Fashion/Conscious’ goes way beyond the reopening of the MoMu building - it is also an open invitation for an alternative fashion experience in Antwerp. An inclusive line-up with lots of exhibitions, open-air projects, city walks and activities for everyone, from hardcore fashion fans, to curious passers by.

Besides being a must-visit destination, renovated MoMu building is also a starting point. The exhibition programme from ‘2.021’ winds all through the streets of Antwerp. A wide range of events in diverse locations throughout the city inspire visitors to reflect, participate, challenge set ideas, relax and inhale the fashion culture. For this programme, the museum has joined forces with the city of Antwerp and partners such as VISITFLANDERS, the Fashion Department at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp, Flanders DC for Fashion and AMS.
