Next to the fairground, Umwelt Mode is located in the ground floor of a gutted building in the Clarastraße previously occupied by a generic clothing store. For the exhibition, proposing that the venue is haunted by the spirit of cheap fashion, four project spaces have been invited to reflect on the particular context of the space, building a bridge between the constructed fantasy of the fashion industry and the lived vernacular of daily dressing.
The galleries, multidisciplinary art spaces and cultural projects The Community (Paris), MAVRA (Berlin), TG (Nottingham), and UNSERE UMWELT (Basel) will bring together various positions in this collectively coordinated group show. The Community presents Brendan Fowler, Hanne Jurmu, Aamu Salo, and Thompson Street Studio. MAVRA shows pcnc_bay and collaborators. TG brings projects by Jacqueline Fraser, Stuart McKenzie, Alex Vivian and Jan Vorisek. And UNSERE UMWELT invites Lane Cormick, Adriano Costa, Ruby Jeppe, Thomas Jeppe, Joanne Robertson and Dana Munro to present their works.
The exhibition follows on Thomas Jeppe’s UNSERE UMWELT underground gallery,produced in 2016 as part of Benedikt Wyss’ demolition residency HAUS#99.
