The catalog was published on the occasion of the exhibition wow! Woven? Entering the (sub)Textiles (6.13.2015 – 9.10.2015) at Künstlerhaus, Halle für Kunst & Medien.
The exhibition attends to the diverse issues related to the position of “textiles” as medium and material in the exploration of contemporary art practice in this present age teeming with networking metaphors. wow! Woven? Entering the (sub) Textiles accentuates its exhibition focus by concentrating on works that foster aspects of an artistically investigative exploration of history, including the role of the textile industry within the capitalist form of commodity production and the means of organising production methods.
