Abstract: Founded in 1978 by Stefan Eins, Fashion Moda became an important voice in the art world up until the mid-1980's. Defining itself as a 'concept,' Fashion Moda crossed postmodern boundaries and endeavored to redefine the function of art. Featuring such artists as Keith Haring, David Wojnarowicz, Jenny Holzer, Mark Kostabi, Joe Lewis, John Ahearn, and Kenny Scharf, and graffiti artists like Richard Hambleton, Koor, Crash, Daze, Spank and many others, Fashion Moda provided a venue for young artists of the period. The collection includes photographs, color slides, posters, flyers, announcements, press releases, magazine articles, reviews, grant proposals, video tapes, business files, artworks, and one audiotape.
