Together with curator Lou Stoppard, we asked various makers and experts for their own take on the hoodie. From essays to artworks, the different contributions illustrate the wide range of meanings that highlight the complex nature of an item of clothing that all of us own.

Many different ideas influenced the creation of The Hoodie exhibition. To do justice to some of these, we commissioned special contributions in the form of essays, artworks, videos and more, which are collected here. Covering everything from the history of fashion to the representation of the Black body in art and photography, these stories reveal the hidden significance of an everyday garment.
