The uniform renders individuals identical without distinguishing class or wealth. It can create an image of reassuring equality or disturbing conformity. Here, the authors and curators involved in the project take a look at the uniform as the prototype of men's clothing, showing the technical and formal perfection of military wear as one of the most advanced points of reference for contemporary fashions. They also analyse the way the uniform has been cannibalised by pop culture and critically used by art from the end of World War II to the present day. Uniform: Order and Disorder is enriched by texts from leading contemporary writers who use the uniform as a vehicle for launching the debate on the language of social and aesthetic symbols. Vanessa Beecroft, Joseph Beuys, Robert Mapplethorpe, Wolfgang Tillmans, Gucci, Maharishi, Prada and Raf Simons are among the numerous artists represented.
