MESTESHUKAR BUTIQ: Evolution of Roma crafts and craftsmen. From archaic to contemporary
Good news from one of the members of the ERSTE Foundation Roma Partnership: the Mesteshukar ButiQ store displays a new presentation.
“Evolution of Roma crafts and craftsmen” is an exhibition dedicated to the performance and artistry of the Roma artisans in self-improving their products by working with international designers. It’s an exhibition that summarizes two years of intense work in creating no less then six different life-style collections and putting them in one place, the Mesteshukar ButiQ store. The purpose of this cultural manifestation is to present the public the evolution of the craftsmen through products and photos. It is a path of understanding their valuable techniques and artistry, but also to really see the true impact of meeting and working with a designer on adapting old products to contemporary demands.
