"We did not want to emphasize 'Lagerfeld the man' but rather 'Lagerfeld the designer'" - Andrew Bolton, curator of the exhibition
-> Should such a man be put on a pedestal in a museum ?

On models speaking up about sexual harrasment within the fashion industry

"If you don't want your pants pulled about, don't become a model! Join a nunnery ; there'll always be a place for you in the convent. They're even recruiting!"

When asked about the fashion industry's unhealthy standards

"No one wants to see curvy women"

On Coco Chanel

"She wasn't ugly enough to be a feminist"

On Germany welcoming Muslim refugees

"You cannot kill millions of Jews and then take in millions of their worst enemies afterwards. I know someone in Germany who took in a young Syrian, and after four days said: 'The greatest thing Germany invented was the Holocaust’."

... but the artist as well.
An exhibition highlighting the art...
What a few visitors had to say :
  • Can we separate the art from the artist ?
  • Should we separate the art from the artist ?
  • Can we still appreciate a piece of art when we know it was made by a terrible person ?
