Kilims from the Neiriz Collection at the Volkspark, Halle

The Berlin artist/art dealer Hamid Sadighi is descended from Southwest Persian tribal khans. Until 30 November 2014, the exhibition ‘100 Kelims’ representing about one third of his collection of 19th century Persian tribal and nomadic flatweaves (arguably the world’s best), as well as some closely related Transcaucasian and Anatolian kilims, is on show at the Volkspark in Halle, a university town between Berlin and Leipzig.  The exhibition is a collaboration between Sadighi and the Burg Giebichenstein University of Art and Design, which has been involved in the teaching of textile design since its foundation in 1915. It is an extension of the university’s engagement with textiles, and aims to reach out to a younger audience, broaden horizons, and create new opportunities. IMG_5732
