Clothing the Pandemic

A Virtual Exhibition of COVID-19 Face Masks from Around the World

Mask made with a bra cup

This mask is made with a bra cup into which a fleece is inserted. It was made because of the fear of not having a mask, and it is also the subject of a joke with a friend: "I couldn't have done it with mine"! Inventiveness in scarcity and humour are two recurrent modes in the MUCEM collection and both conjure up the anxiety felt during lockdown.
