Two masks by Bob Basset will be displayed at Steampunk Art, an exhibition that will take place in Seoul and Beijing.
For the first time ever, Bob Basset has designed an item inspired by a current sociopolitical situation. After protesters clashed with police at the Independence Square (Maidan Nezalezhnosti) in Kyiv and many reporters received beatings, the design studio’s cofounder Serhii Petrov responded by crafting the leather “Mask of Maidan.”
After being shown in Paris, the Futur Antérieur/Future Perfect exhibit is going overseas—from September 14 till November 10, 2013, it will be displayed in New York City.
