About the theme

The theme (wo)man & technology will focus on:

  • Technology and human values
  • virtual reality and tactile sensation
  • gender, technology and textile tradition
  • global versus local cultural heritage and traditions

Northern Fibre VI, (wo)man & technology is an international art workshop and a related exhibition, organized by the Finnish Textile Artists Association, TEXO. The series of Northern Fibre events have been arranged every other year in the Nordic countries since 1995. The workshop will be a forum for interchange of ideas and cultural perspectives between the artists from different countries. For individual artists it offers a possibility to have new viewpoints into their work, as well by the shift in geographical location, as the special theme to be worked with.
