Sommer Symposium 2019 > Exhibitions

During the summer symposium  TEXTILE KULTUR HASLACH and the ETN conference several textile exhibitions will take place in Haslach and its surrounding area. Here are some details on the larger projects. Smaller exhibitions and more information will follow.

GARDEN OF EDEN – group exhibition at Castle Neuhaus + OPEN CALL!

This exhibition will show a mixture of works that are selected by a jury, works byinvited artists and historic or ethnographic textiles in a wonderful medieval castle overlooking the Danube.

For a textile exhibition on this topic, we have found the ideal location: high above the Danube is an impressive structure - Neuhaus castle. The narrow, four-storey tract, which dates from the Gothic period, fascinates with atmospheric rooms, interesting structures that testify to the passing of the centuries and not least because of its unique location high above the meandering Danube and the foothills of the Mühlviertel. Neuhaus castle is situated about 20 km from Haslach and 30 km from Linz.

Open Call
In the group exhibition, artistic or design-oriented works are shown that have a clear reference to the medium of textiles. There are no restrictions on the choice of materials and techniques. The date of creation of the work does not have to be recent at all. However, works from the last 3 years will be treated preferentially in case of doubt.
An expert jury will select the exhibits from the works submitted. Artists and designers can send their application form until 15th of February.

Venue: Castle Neuhaus, St. Martin im Mühlkreis
Duration of the Exhibition: 17th July– 4th August, 2019
