About

Tilleke Schwarz hails from The Netherlands where she stitches visually poetic “maps of modern life”. In her engagement with contemporary life, her work is reminiscent of graffiti. But unlike graffiti her work is hand embroidered with very fine stitches and lovely colors. Tilleke includes anything that amazes, moves, or intrigues her. Daily life, mass media, traditional stitched samplers, and cats are major sources of inspiration. The result is a humorous reflection on our modern society in textile form. Her work is a mixture of her singular personality, a fine graphic sensibility, and a bit of fooling around. 

The lecture will explore feminist methodolgies and tactics in relation to Tilleke's work.
