Umwelt Mode is a collaborative exhibition taking place in a gutted building formerly occupied by a generic clothing store.
The project proposes that the venue is still haunted by the spirit of cheap fashion.
Umwelt Mode brings together a number of project spaces who have been invited for their established interest in the fashion/art nexus. They in turn have invited artists, whose works will range from objects to performance – paintings, garments, structural interventions, runway presentations – making the exhibition a bridge between the constructed fantasy of the fashion industry and the lived vernacular of daily dressing.
