KUMU Tallinn - Sots Art and Fashion: Conceptual Clothes from Eastern Europe
A. Weizenbergi 34, 10127 Tallinn, Estonia
Kumu is a fabulous contemporary art and fashion museum situated over looking a beautiful park.
Apparently ‘Sots Art emerged in the early 1970s in Moscow and was the first movement in the history of unofficial Soviet art to take its inspiration from the detested Soviet visual culture and In the 2010s, a group of young fashion designers entered the stage in Eastern Europe; they find their inspiration from the socialist past of their countries and their style is known on the catwalks of the world as the post-Soviet aesthetic’.
This amazing collection of art and fashion pieces are displayed in this beautiful, light airy museum that is filled with light and an ambience perfect for its contents.
Stroll amongst the collection of Inspirational and beautiful Eastern European culture and art.
The Museum not only features works from across Estonia but includes works from private collections from Moscow, Tallinn, Kiev and Berlin, and from the collections of the Estonian History Museum, the Art Museum of Estonia, the Estonian Artists’ Association, Mart Erik’s collection and the Fotomuseum Winterthur.
The Sots art & fashion exhibition was stunning, mesmerising and just brilliant and is at Kumu until 4th August 2019.
