Premiere | The textile within the visual arts is in the focus of the 'The Event of a Thread' exhibition. Which are the meanings and messages of textures? What is the cultural status of fabrics? How can they be 'read'? What does tissue tell of its origin, its relevance, and its social importance?
ifa plans and organises exhibitions of contemporary art from Germany, presenting insights into the fine arts, photography and film, and design and architecture in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. These exhibitions tour the world for several years and are shown in international museums all over the world. In our diverse art education programmes we link the German art scene with international artists and cultural institutions and protagonists, setting up cooperation projects and networks. Our exhibitions create local forums for encounter, open up international perspectives, and build sustained stores of knowledge. ifa also provides loans to museums for special exhibitions and presentations.
