The Textil³ network was founded in 2014 by 11 textile artists in Northern Germany with the aim of exchanging ideas and organizing projects and exhibitions.
The group consists of artists who, through their different textile origins, represent a wide range of textile arts.
Regular meetings were held in the past, work was presented and discussed. Members were informed about techniques and materials.
After exhibitions, projects and workshops, four member of the group decided to start with a new project "TEXNET 1" (TEXTILE NETWORKING).
They want to work together with four other international guest artists for a period of two years. The basis for the work is textile material but there is also the possibility of using non-textile materials.
The four members of the group come from Germany, their guests from France, Norway and Canada. Communication takes place via Internet portals like Yahoo and Facebook.
Each of the eight artists has been working for several years, with their respective national background and culture.
The participants are asked to recognize differences and similarities and to learn from them. The projects will inspire and stimulate discussions and constructive criticism.
The exhibition will travel two years as a traveling exhibition through Europe.
