Entangled – Texts On Textiles

What does it mean to be a curator who writes, and, more specifically, how can curators write about textiles?

The publication steps outside the framework of the typical exhibition catalogue to occupy ‘the space between literature and criticism’.

The Community of Writers was set up to create time and space to retreat from these outside opinions and demands and to let curiosity and the joy of writing be the driving forces of the writing process.

This book has been realised under the auspice of Interweaving Structures: Fabric as Material, Method, and Message, and specifically through collaboration between the Faculty of Fine Art, Music and Design at the University of Bergen and the Central Museum of Textiles in Łódź. The two partners have strong positions of specialisation – the museum acts as a caretaker of material textile traditions and art in Poland, and the faculty has a strong textile art tradition and offers the only education programme for curators in Norway.
