Chef Asha Capella hosts this week’s Sunday Scroll on Facebook Live. This digital detour is an exploration of themes in The Hoodie exhibition that speak to her as a maker.
Asha is an all-rounder who loves to learn and do new things. As a chef, her passions are cooking and food. Next to these, her favourite things are people dancing offbeat, and her family.

Most of us own one. The hoodie is everywhere: from the street to the sidelines of every sports field, and from the catwalk to the office and the studio. For some of us, the hoodie is just a casual, comfortable thing to wear, but for others it comes with all kinds of unavoidable social and cultural baggage. You might even say that it’s the last political garment in Western fashion. In the exhibition The Hoodie, the hoodie as ‘storyteller’ is central, as the bearer of a wide range of different meanings.
