beFLÜGELt ("be inspired")

In the exhibition beFLUEGELt we are presenting the collection of Marianne Flügel, a textile teacher from Cologne, who has traveled her whole life, collecting various everyday textile objects using a wide variety of primary techniques, analyzing them and partially reworking them. These are mostly very archaic techniques ("primary textile techniques") that were used before weaving was invented and can usually be carried out without any major technical equipment. The wonderful, small collection of ethnographic samples and didactic preparations was handed over to the Textile Centre Haslach and is exhibited on a larger scale for the first time in 2023. It documents a "textile view" of the world and pays tribute to the many, mostly unnoticed little things that are often cleverly made and can actually "inspire" when you look at their inner structures and their special aesthetics.
