As a journey through finest textile art, the exhibition features selected protagonists from the discipline, like Sofie Dawo, who by transgressing the boundaries of the medium’s two-dimensional format, steered the evolution of tapestry towards three-dimensional relief and fine art. The artists Lena Meyer-Bergner and Elisabeth Kadow – both trained at the Bauhaus University in Weimar – are presented with studies on paper for textiles alongside with a homage from Verner Panton to Josef Albers, selected samples by Barbro Nilsson from the notable Swedish weaver Märta-Maas Fjetterström, and a hand-woven wall piece made in the Sixties by Renata Bonfanti. The site specific installation by Frauke Eigen “Friendship-Balls” – or Japanese Temari – further traces a Far East tradition from the 7th Century.
