An independent curator, writer, and lecturer. Member of the network Skräddare som rebell (Tailor as rebel) that consists of artists and curators working with their shared history of coming from families working with textile. The network has been organizing public and private events for over five years. The common work always starts off from a broad definition of textile as a mean to discuss and work practically with a wide range of issues of aesthetic and political relevance.
I was born and grew up in Borås, with a grandmother and mother working in the textile factories, therefor I’m interested in taking part in Det Andra väveriet. I would like to find new ways to return to the history of the region and ask if there is other ways of moving forward. In my opinion artistic practices and artists have not yet gained the attention they should have in that specific context. I propose that we can learn from the philosopher Julia Kristeva and her idea of the intimate revolt. She uses the latin word volvere – to turn back, but also to discard authorities. This kind of revolt is a reflective and thoughtful way of working, moving from side to side, which is also the way one works in the loom.
