a lecture by Christel Vesters, curator of the exhibition Interwoven Histories
In the last week of the exhibition INTERWOVEN HISTORIES presents two events dedicated to the interweaving of the interweaving of art, textile and histories of oppression, resistance and emancipation.
Almost every history of struggle and emancipation has textile threads running through its folds; some outspoken and visible, like textile banners carrying messages of protest; others more subtle to the point of containing coded language. Just as textiles have less perfectly handcrafted reverse sides kept away from the public eye, histories of emancipation too, underneath their heroic and victorious appearance, hold sides to it that yet have to be recognized. In her lecture INTERWOVEN HISTORIES curator and writer Christel Vesters will weave together various examples of the interwoven histories of textile, resistance, and protest, including those embodied by the works in the exhibition.
