The fascination of the textile as a working material – in all its diversity – is the central focus of this exhibition developed by the textile course of the department of design at the Burg Giebichenstein Kunsthochschule Halle. Exemplary final works and other student works shed light on the potential offered for textile design by experimental working methods, which can lead to concrete applications in the free market – several examples of which can also be seen. The central topics encompass the interaction with tradition, processes of transformation, colour, experiments with technology and materials (leading, for example, to smart textiles) and not least the extensive field of sustainability. A catalogue will be published to accompany the exhibition.
The exhibition is a collaborative project with the textiles course in the Department of Design at Burg Giebichenstein Kunsthochschule (College of Art) Halle.
