A Journey from Delhi to Zurich

Textile and textile art hold a crucial world historical significance especially in its entanglements with urban space. This panel will explore this through a journey across space and time. In their talk, Nitin Bathla and Sumedha Garg will foreground their art practice with women garment and textile workers in Delhi with the city’s contemporary extended urbanisation. Miriam Bettin, the second speaker, will explore the emancipatory quality of textile art in her talk, surveying contemporary artistic strategies of textile-based art and their antiracist, anticolonial, and queer-feminist moment. She will attempt to undo the patriarchal belittling of textile art as decorative and primitive, female connotated craft media through charting the radical shift from the formal austerity, minimal and rationalist concepts of Western Modern art, towards a broad accessibility, flat hierarchies, and democratization. In closing the panel, Joya Indermühle will bring the discussion back to Switzerland, exploring the historical entanglements between India and Switzerland around textile. She will share reflections from her curation of the 2019-2020 exhibition «Indiennes. Material for a thousand stories» at the Landesmuseum Zürich.
