The Burg Giebichenstein University of Art and Design in Halle has been offering textile courses since its foundation in 1915, and recently acquired the Staatliche Textil- und Gobelinmanufaktur Halle. This exhibition 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. In the words of Hamid Sadight Neiriz, ‘Young people have unused eyes’. The exhibition opens on the evening of 5 November with a keynote speech by Dr Friedrich Spuhler, former curator at the Museum fur Islamische Kunst in Berlin/Dahlem.
