• Textiles: Open Letter

Watson, Grant and Frank, Rike, eds. 2015, Book, Textiles: Open Letter Sternberg Press. ISBN 9783956791376

Abstract or Description:

This publication examines the referential and analytical qualities of textiles through both contemporary and historical works. The contributions in this book reflect on the complex interplay between the various functions and connotations of textiles such as the emphasis on their tactile qualities or the artistic value attributed to them and the attendant conflicts and antagonisms that articulate relations of power and value and of the interaction of artistic processes with their overarching contexts. Textiles: Open Letter stems from an exhibition at the Museum Abteiberg, Monchengladbach, and a research project (2010-14) initiated by Rike Frank and Grant Watson.
