On September 1st, 2018, the World Museum in Rotterdam opened the exhibition ‘POWERMASK – The Power of Masks’ with Walter van Beirendonck as curator and our mannequins to support the presentation.

POWERMASK is an exhibition that stimulates the senses.

Walter van Beirendonck takes visitors to very different worlds in which the mask plays a role, from traditional use in a range of cultures to the source of inspiration that masks represent in the international art and fashion world.

The exhibition contains work by dozens of artists, fashion designers and photographers, including the Belgian painter James Ensor, Keith Haring, Louise Bourgeois and Inez van Lamsweerde.

We had the chance to get a sneak peek of the collection and meet Mr. Van Beirendonck in person.
