Umwelt Mode is a collaborative exhibition taking place in a construction site 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, at the moment that this field of commerce begins its gradual exodus from the area.
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.

Umwelt Mode follows on Unsere Umwelt underground gallery, produced last year as part of Haus#99 demolition residency.
