THEME RELATED GUIDED TOUR

"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.
