Sempre avanti!

As part of the exhibition series Public Fictions, a collection of performative garments, conceived in dialogue with and realized by fashion designer and product developer Daniel Juhart, was created. 

The garments are based on synthetic tanning processes carried out by Bayer in Leverkusen and show scans of leather samples (ca. 1950) that were created in the course of these processes. Excerpts from the recipes for this tanning process, developed around 1930, can be found in the accompanying publication and refer to the chemical waste stored in the Dhünnaue contaminated site (now Neulandpark), which polluted and pollutes people and the environment.


The collection was activated by dancers from the Crossing Creeks Square Dance Club e.V. Leverkusen as part of the exhibition.
