 WWWoW - World Wide Weaving of Women


















International female artists network through their textile works. Weaving, knotting and braiding as a means of communication in workshops, exhibitions and interactions.

World Wide Weaving of Women is an initiative that aims to network women worldwide who are involved with textile art. We want to integrate all divisions of the "fibre art". There should also be space for women who weave, braid and knot everyday goods as well as artists who generate works of art from threads and other flexible materials.

Even in times of unrestrained gender discourse, we want to keep the focus on crafting women, because in many countries it is still the women from traditional households who make the weavings and the men who are employed in the field of commercialization.


So we would like to raise the handicraft and the artistic production of woven and braided goods to a higher standard. Every work, every pattern made by women of a society, a tribe, a family should be considered their individual and protected work.

We want to bring various works to the public in exhibitions and presentations.

They are each clearly attributed to the manufacturer under copyright law.

This applies in particular to ethnic motifs, techniques that have been passed down through many generations and individually created patterns and workpieces.


In the field of fine arts, it is important to us to take the women and their works out of the corner of housewife art and present them in a contemporary art context.

We have already succeeded in doing this with the start-up project WWWoW1. Four professional artists have woven, braided and crocheted various mostly textile waste materials, creating a walkable landscape of enchanting interconnected works of art.

These first "weaving" contacts are to spread over the entire globe in the future.

WWWOW1 is the first self-contained project in a whole series of different connections with weaving women from other countries and customs. An analogue network in the truest sense of the word is to be created.
