Umwelt Mode is a collaborative exhibition taking place at Clarastrasse 13, 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 will bring together a number of project spaces who have been invited for their established interest in the fashion/art nexus. They in turn will invite 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. Umwelt Mode follows on Jeppe’s Unsere Umwelt underground gallery, produced in Basel last year as part of Wyss’ Haus#99 teardown residency.
