Soc(ialist) Deco - Textile
temporary exhibition
2012-10-03 - 2013-02-03

How did we dress ourselves and our homes in the years when fashion was more slow-paced, liveable and - we dare to say - more acceptable or even loveable? The 'otthonka' (housecoat) is more or less the same still, or a bit less acrylic. The 'suba'-carpet (hand-knotted carpet with the yarn left long) nowadays can be found on the floor in 'minimal art'-style rather than on the wall.

This next program of the soc-deco exhibition series - after ceramics, posters and metallic objects - introduces visitors to the world of textile-based object culture of the 1960s, 70s and 80s.

The aim is not a comprehensive presentation of the era's textile culture, but to call attention to the objects affecting the visual culture of our not too distant past and to start a dialogue about these objects and our memories connected to them.

Exhibition closing with a Retro-party starting at 18 on Feb 3, 2013. Free entry.
