Curator: Christoph Brockhaus

The artist, who was born in 1924 in South Bohemia, is one of the founding fathers of New Textile Art, which gained international acceptance thanks to the Bauhaus and the Informal Movement, especially in America, Japan and Eastern Europe. It was predominantly young architects, sculptors and artists who lent fresh expression to an art form that had already existed for thousands of years. They overcame the division between the painting on card and execution of the actual weaving by designing the weaving process themselves, in accordance with their own, small sketches. This exhibition sees itself as a contribution to the large-scale eastward expansion of the EU. It focuses largely on textile reliefs and sculptures, which are complemented by an overview of the artist’s work.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalog containing an autobiography, numerous illustrations, as well as a list of works. The roughly 150-page catalog will cost approximately 24,- Euro.
