Summary note:
From fibers to threads and dyes to fabrics, The Common Thread looks at textile techniques and their contexts of meaning, with the Museum of World Cultures collections from the Americas, Indonesia, Oceania, and Africa forming the starting point. The book presents connections between textile skills and the manifestation basic cognitive abilities. Narrative motifs from various cultures indicate how deeply terms connected with textiles have become established in our use of language. Interdisciplinary perspectives, for instance, from philosophy or contemporary art and music, deepen these themes and offer new, contemporary interpretations. Exhibition: Weltkulturen Museum Frankfurt am Main, Germany (17.11.2016-27.08.2017).
