Interwoven Histories

ROZENSTRAAT is proud to host Interwoven Histories by Touch/Trace, curated by Christel Vesters. The exhibition explores the intricate connections between textile and marginalised histories through the lens of contemporary art. The exhibition shows works by artists who each in their own way engage with textile as medium and mediator, to (re)tell the narratives of movement and migration, of protest and emancipation, of labour, care, and repair, of political turmoil and resistance, combined with personal memories. Along the edges Interwoven Histories probes the ways in which we read and write ‘history’, proposing a concept of history as a multi-layered fabric consisting of different and at times conflicting threads and of entanglements that continue to shape our realities today.


With works by: Mounira Al Solh, Fatima Barznge, Feministische Handwerk Partij, Antonio José Guzman & Iva Jankovic, Patricia Kaersenhout, Mila Lanfermeijer, Jennifer Tee, Vincent Vulsma, and Sheila Hicks.


The exhibition will be accompanied by a public programme and catalogue.
