    "AND THE BEAT GOES ON...Barkcloth from the Collections of the Weltkulturen Museum"


    Textiles made from tree bark have a long tradition in the arts around the world. In Oceania, eighteenth-century European explorers were fascinated by the large panels of barkcloth, often printed or painted with abstract patterns. But producing textiles from the inner bark of trees is also a widespread practice in parts of Africa, in South America and South-east Asia. Eva Neukirchner offers a fascinating insight into this alternative textile production technique, and outlines the significance of barkcloth in everyday life, rituals and art.

    “The material of myths: Sacred robes and textile cosmogonies”
    With Matthias Claudius Hofmann (research assistant, Weltkulturen Museum)





    In all societies, threads, cords and textiles are crucially important culturally. This is particularly evident in myths and legends where textiles or the tools to produce them explain the origins of the world or, for instance, the nature of society. This tour looks specifically at the connection between textiles and their myths in the exhibition THE COMMON THREAD.

    WORKSHOP WITH EXHIBITION TOUR

    Talking patterns


    What do patterns signify and how are they created on the fabric? The resist-dye technique is one particular approach to making patterns by tying up or covering with wax those parts of the fabric which should not be dyed. The technique can be found in many parts of the world, for example, as shibori in Japan, batik in Indonesia or adire in Africa, although each method uses slightly different approaches to create patterns with different meanings. We explore some of these techniques and work with batik, shibori and tie-dye methods to dye our own patterns on fabric.

    “Simply iron?”
    With Kristina Werner (conservator, Weltkulturen Museum)


    What does the work of conservators involve? What are their tasks in setting up an exhibition? And are the textiles in a museum ever ironed? Our conservator Kristina Werner provide not just the answers, but also a rather different perspective on the exhibition.

    "Weaving, crocheting, and knitting … a man’s or woman’s realm?"
    with Berit Mohr (Costume designer and cultural scholar)

    According to the cliché, working with textiles is gendered female. For many people even today, crocheting and knitting conjure up images of a ’plain Jane’ or ’proper little hausfrau’. So is working with textiles also a site of a constant ‘gender war’? Looking at the world without Eurocentric glasses, it soon becomes clear just how untenable such stereotypes are.
    This tour offers a deeper insight into the links between textile production processes, identity and gender roles.

    “Close contact: Restoring barkcloth materials”
    Mareike Mehlis and Kristina Werner (conservators, Weltkulturen Museum)


    Items made from barkcloth have a long history – and are often marked by traces of their production, use, storage and exhibiting. If the materials are creased or torn, it is the conservator’s task to treat this damage.


    After visiting the exhibition and a brief introduction into techniques for producing and restoring barkcloth, you have the chance to try out simple restoration techniques on barkcloth yourself.
