until 21.05. | #3386ARTatBerlin | drj art projects shows from 10th April 2022 together with Frontviews (Opening there: 08.04.) the exhibition “—t—e—x—t—i—l—e— Artists and their works from the universe of fabrics and inter-weaving techniques” with international positions of textile art.
The exhibition —t—e—x—t—i—l—e— is a cooperation between drj art projects and Frontviews. 17 positions from a selection of international artists who work with textiles will be shown simultaneously at the programme gallery drj in the Rote Insel and in the exhibition space HAUNT on Kluckstraße.
The exhibition’s concept revolves around the artists themselves: the curatorial impulse is to show a considered cross-section of the fundamental questions and themes that arise in work with fabric and woven materials, as represented by the invited artists. Thus the exhibition’s subtitle is »Artists and their works from the universe of fabrics and inter-weaving techniques.« Textile is a universe of its own—in all of human existence and therefore also in art.

The conceptual assumption of the project is the following: Since the participating artists have intentionally chosen to work in this particular field of visual art, they must also have knowledge of this superordinate cultural universe and have formed a personal position towards it. This is therefore implicit in the whole project through the artists themselves and through their works. The exhibited works—in their spatial composition and through the interaction of all the project’s elements, including people, artworks, organizers, and venues—create a specifically linked, simultaneously individual and collective statement on the theme: a temporary fabric of material and social praxis.
The exhibition will also be documented in a publication that focuses on the artists themselves and gives them a voice: in addition to photographic documentation of the composition of the works in both exhibition spaces, the centerpiece of the book will be personal commentaries by the artists on their positions and their works. In short texts they will describe their approach, fascination, and fundamental interest in working in art that emerges from a textile-based thinking. This will create an authentic, personal, yet collectively developed whole as a contribution to and corresponding with the thematic diversity of the subject.
