The response to our publicity for « Teximus 2 » was just as high as for « Teximus 1 ».  

We were astounded to see so many new artists’ names with so many compelling works.  It was not easy for the independent judges to make their decisions. In the end, 42 works from 31 artists were exhibited in Zug, with an impressive range of expression.

All the works of the artists, as well as some of individual judges and of the organizers collected in the catalogue «Teximus 2».

Press Report: For the second time, the Altstadthalle in Zug was the setting for the juried exhibition TEXIMUS. The exhibition was organized by the TAFch group who have set themselves the goal of bringing textiles and fiber in art to a wider audience, and to establish and promote networks for focused cooperation. The exhibition has enabled the organizers to make great strides towards their goal. 

There were 42 works by 31 artists to  see and explore. The show lasted 3½ days and attracted over a thousand visitors who came to admire the artwork and to get to know the artists.

It was not only this number that was impressive but also the fact that so many men, as well as young visitors and also people from Zoug found their way to the exhibition.

Beatrice Lanter received the public’s choice award in the amount of CHF 500 for her work „hinten III - bunt“ („Reverse III – Colourful“),

closely followed by Beatrice Streuli with her work „Samen - durchbrochen“ („Seed – Perforated“)

and Beatrice Bernasconi with her work „Forgotten Stories“.

The judges’ prize in the amount of CHF 500 was awarded to the artist Barbara Thüler Hollenstein for her work „unverbindlich verbunden“ („Unbindingly bound“).

She interprets in an innovative way the connections of an imaginary surface and succeeds in transforming everyday material into a new context. 

Barbara’s work can be remodeled according to the venue in which she is exhibiting. Thus, it is a highly contemporary piece of art offering an analogy for today’s unsettled and often fast way of life; perhaps even with a clever hint of the disconnect between the single individual and the wide-ranging span of society.

In this exhibition were works whose form and content prompted larger and more intensive debate than in the first TEXIMUS three years ago.

Themes were reminiscences, personal journeys, defiance and the precious qualities of life. Borders between classical paintings and textile art were skillfully crossed. Pure textiles were expressively applied. The visitors themselves commented favorably on the sensitive and appropriate way in which the art was displayed.

The organizers are happy with this show in every aspect. Especially worth mentioning is the fact that a fifth of the works were sold! That is not usually the case with such exhibitions.

The team is now accelerating towards TEXIMUS 3 in three years’ time.
