ARTIST IN CONVERSATION

“From Weaving to Web”
With Maren Gebhardt (artist and editor, Tübingen)

“Threads of Modernity”, the installation created by Maren Gebhardt specifically for the Weltkulturen Museum, was inspired by the many points of intersection between textile craft work and the digital world. What links are there between weaving and computers? What do glass-fibre cables have in common with spinning and knitting? In THE COMMON THREAD exhibition, the artist discusses her work.

Maren Gebhardt is a humanities scholar and art educationalist. She has worked for (dance) theatre and major exhibitions. Her critique of issues and themes in her artistic and academic works is strongly informed by her interest in the history of the gaze.
