MacraME? MacraWE! It takes two, sis! 

In this macramé-workshop with textile artist Sandra Eichinger we will create bonds in a figurative and literal sense. 

Based on the exhibition HIIIIIIIT  by Stefan Panhans and Andrea Winkler at Kunstraum Niederoesterreich, we will deal with individual (ME) and collective (WE) risk management and social as well as individual resilience. We need more safety, and we find it in our "sister*hood", woven out of female* solidarity and friendship, that we visualize in the practical part of the workshop through the textile practice macramé. 

Macramé is a knotting technique and was, as a feminist and artistic practice, ridiculed by the art canon in the mid-20th century as "housewifely." However, knots (as used in macramé) historically date back to the Stone Age, where weapons and nets were made for hunting, and they still accompany us today with ties and military uniform decorations in milieus interpreted as "typically male." Macramé is thus resistant to stereotypes and universally applicable from decoration to survival skills.

But one thing must never be forgotten about bonding: "It takes two, sis!", both for tying threads and for sister*hood.

Girls-Workshops in Kunstraum Niederoesterreich

Already in the 1980’s, the artist group Guerilla Girls asked the question "Do women have to be naked to get into the museum?" Named after the feminist pioneers who have been surveying representation in the field of art for thirty years, Kunstraum Niederoesterreich's GUERILLA GIRLS Workshop series provides a selective offer for girls in order to discuss issues such as emancipation and self-determination with young women.
