‘Intuitive Material and Social Textile Studies’ with Nadine Göpfert
Wednesday, 15.05.24 at 5 pm

How are innovative, sustainable and forward-looking designs, concepts and perspectives on textile materials created? As part of the lecture series, Nadine Göpfert will give an insight into her practice as a textile designer and her teaching concept in the field of experimental design in the Department of Textile and Material Design.

Nadine Göpfert is a multidisciplinary designer. Her work includes creative direction, design and consultancy in the field of textile and material design for interior, product, art and fashion.

Her mostly reduced designs question the conventional materiality, form and nature of existing objects, their functions and common use through minimal, yet radical interventions.

Within her collections and installations, she examines the function and conventional use of materials in order to develop new design perspectives. Her internationally exhibited research projects question the relationship between clothing, the individual and society in order to uncover unconscious patterns of behaviour in the everyday use of textiles.

Nadine Göpfert has taught at the Bauhaus University Weimar (DE), the Sandberg Instituut Amsterdam (NL) and the École d'architecture de la ville & des territoires Paris-Est (FR), among others, in recent years before her appointment at the weissensee school of art and design berlin in 2023. Past exhibitions include Fetishism in Fashion (curated by Li Edelkoort), Trapholt Design Museum (DK), Future Fashions, Dutch Design Week (NL) and Utopian Bodies, Liljevalchs Museum Stockholm (SE).
