The textile medium: form, material, technique and metaphor  

The glossary explores and presents sixty-five essential and critical terms that define the textile medium as a specific form, material, technique, and metaphor from antiquity to the present. It collects contributions of international specialists in the field. Each entry discusses one illustrated object which epitomizes the main concepts related to one of the volume's keywords:

Absorption–Abstraction–Affect–Canopy–Canvas–Carpet–Case–Clothing–Cotton–Craft–Curtain–Cushion–Cut–Digitality–Display–Drapery–Dye–Embroidery–Felt–Flag–Flatness–Fold–Formlessness–Gender–Globalism–Glove–Grid–Hair–Hem–Knitting–Knot–Labor–Lace–Marginalization–Mobility–Network–Ornament–Patchwork–Pattern–Rags–Recto/Verso–Revival–Sacredness–Sampler–Screen–Sewing–Silk–Skin–Space–Spider–Stockings–Tactility–Tapestry–Tear–Technology–Tent–Texture–Textus–Thread–Upholstery–Veil–Wallpaper–Weaving–Wrapping–Wool

The glossary is addressed to scholars and students of art and architectural history and related fields as well as to artists and curators. It offers a new point of reference and departure for future research on the textile medium as such.
