Series of talks
Textile Patterns by Otti Berger
A series of talks with experts and practitioners
Thursday, 22 June 2017
5 – 6.30 p.m.
Maker-Space inside the exhibition
Lecture: Prof. Bettina Göttke-Krogmann, Textile Design, Burg Giebichenstein – University of Art and Design Halle
Quality, function and sensibility stand at the forefront of textile design today. Otti Berger’s perspective on material and design is more important now than ever before, in as much as: »pictures do not interest us […] we want to arrive at the best-possible, definitive textile« (Otti Berger 1930).
Prof. Bettina Göttke-Krogmann from the textile department of the Burg Giebichenstein University of Art and Design Halle will contribute to the series with a talk about Otti Berger’s approach and the degree to which it is reflected in the present-day processes that result in aesthetic and functionally valuable textiles. Which role does the experiment play, which materials are used and why, and which requirements are made of the fabrics?
