Kim Berit Heppelmann stands as a lone fighter at the thresholds between fashion, art and philosophy. Trained as a tailor in Hamburg. Studied at the Academy of Fine Arts Maastricht. She won not only the GenArt Award in New York, but also further prizes in Italy, New Zealand and Hong Kong. The interdependence of the body, the outer shell, movement, and the space is what challenges her to reflect on the basic principles of clothing as sculpture, performance, picture, text, house or emotion.
