drj art projects and Frontviews feature a cooperative exhibition on textile art of the 21st century.

As stated in the subtitle of the project, textile bares in itself a universe of its own – as within human existence, so within art. In order to find an authentic access on this complex, the exhibition focuses on the artists themselves. 



The basic assumption is this: Since the participating artists have actively committed themselves to working in this field of art, it is given that they are all aware of the meta-context and have positioned themselves personally in relation to it. Thus, by themselves and their works, the artists incorporate the whole project per se and obviously. In this manner - without trying an external approach - this exhibition setting relies in the trust of the artistic praxis by itself.

Inherent questions about the specifics and practice of the medium, as well as its relevance for the present and future of contemporary art, include these:
_ What kind of specific quality offer woven media, so that they are the choice of so many artists today?
_ Do networking, mutually supportive structures require specific techniques and actors?

_ Are gender, consciousness of tradition or cultural background decisive artistic factors?

_ Does thinking in textiles and transferring it into works of art mean taking up a special position with regard to society?

Based on spatial composition of the works and by the interaction of all the project’s elements, including people, artworks, organizers and venues, this exhibition creates a simultaneously individual and collective statement on the theme: a temporary fabric of material and social praxis.



A publication will also reflect this. In addition to the images documenting the exhibitions, the focus will be again on the artists: The core of the book will consist of comments on their stance and the artworks.
