Goldsworthy, Kate (2010) reTHINK! [Show/Exhibition]

Type of Research: Show/Exhibition
Creators: Goldsworthy, Kate

Group exhibition.

Fashion made from recycled polyester? A chair made from resin and flax fibres? A machine powered by solar energy that produces textile objects? These are just a few examples of the many objects on display in the reTHINK! Exhibition in the Textielmuseum. The exhibition presents sustainable fashion, interior textiles and product design and examines the questions and dilemmas associated with the development of sustainable products.

We are surrounded by textiles, from the clothing we wear to our sofa upholstery and the carpeting at the office. The textile industry, however, numbers among the highest-polluting sectors. Creative minds from the world of science, industry and design are therefore exploring new strategies. Sustainability entails considering the entire process, from base material to recycling.
