To Open Eyes

Art and Textiles From the Bauhaus to Today
This catalogue focuses on a discipline often forgotten in the annals of art history: textile art. In the 20th and 21st century, the spectrum of artistic approaches to the theme of textiles ranges from the study of the ornamental designs of Viennese workshops to the Bauhaus explorations of colour, the interrogation of materiality and the ironic and critical handling of materials and fabrics.
