Fascinated by culture and technology, Florian addresses current trends as a designer in media ranging from texts to video essays and social media. His favourite things are train journeys, slow documentaries, and his collection of football shirts.
“If I share my knowledge and ignorance with others, and others with me, they may lead us both to insight, or raise new questions.”
Interaction designer Florian van Zandwijk hosted the first ever Sunday Scroll on Facebook Live. In this digital detour, we join Florian as he finds out more about The Hoodie. He goes into the hoodie and privacy, among other things.
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 Hoodie exhibition, the hoodie is central - as storyteller and bearer of a wide range of different meanings.
