In the course of the summer symposium TEXTILE KULTUR HASLACH and the concurrent ETN (European Textile Network) Conference, tenders for an international group exhibition on this topic were invited, which will show the works of contemporary textile artists.
The selected works are very different in terms of the techniques and materials used and deal with the "Garden of Eden" in very different ways, resulting in a diverse view of the subject. In addition to the juried works, some well-known artists were personally invited to participate in the exhibition. The exhibition will open up a broad overview of current trends in the field of contemporary textile art and will present a total of 90 works by artists from 34 nations.
A visit to the exhibition will also be worthwhile because of its special location: Neuhaus castle is an impressive building high above the Danube. The narrow, four-storey section of the building from the Gothic period, fascinates with its atmospheric rooms, and not least because of its unique location overlooking the meandering Danube and the foothills of the Mühlviertel, a place that enchants and lets the time stand still.
