In spinnen, deufert&plischke in collaboration with the Spanish embroidery artist Kike García Gil, will create a workshop in which visitors can come into contact with the production methods of the mythical figure Arachne. Arachne is a figure marked by exclusion, ostracization and transformation who was turned into a spider for her hyper-realistic depictions of violence against women in society. Her art was censored, and she was only able to continue her practice of “weaving” after being turned into a creature. Arachne’s workshop is a space for collectively experiencing the social and artistic forms that are increasingly disappearing from our society: analogue communication, manual work, physical contact. Everyone is welcome to come and spin with us!
