Vom Quilt zum Artquilt: Ein Weg von tausend Jahren

Der Art Quilt als relativ junge Kunstform ist das bislang jngste Puzzleteil einer bereits jahrtausendealten Geschichte von Quilts und Patchwork. Jeder Quilt ist durch seine differenzierte, kulturell gewachsene, umfangreiche Handarbeitstechnik gekennzeichnet. Daher werden in den ersten beiden Teilen die ?Grundfesten? von Technik und Praxis sowie Herkunft und Kulturgeschichte erl„utert. Im ersten Kapitel gehe ich auf grundlegende definitorische Fragen der Differenzierung und Kategorisierung von Quilts ein. Danach werden grundlegende Techniken der Machart vermittelt: Vom Quiltstich ber die Sandwichtechnik und zum grundlegenden Aufbau bis zu grundlegenden Patchwork- und Quiltmustern und -techniken, z.B. ?Crazy? und ?Log Cabin?, sowie Seminoletechniken, Scrap-Quilt und Blocktechniken. Das zweite Kapitel ist der Versuch einer historisch-chronologisch-, sowie kulturvergleichenden Abhandlung ber die Entwicklung des Quilt bis in die 1960er Jahre. šber antike ?Quiltwurzeln? wird die Linie gezogen zum europ„isch-nativen Quilterbe, den englischen, deutschen, schweizerischen, niederl„ndischen, italienischen und franz”sischen Techniken: Dies sind die Quilts der sp„teren amerikanischen Siedler, die sich in Amerikas kolonialen Tagen stets weiterentwickeln werden zum ?amerikanischen? Quilt. Die bedeutenden Quilts der Amischen, modische Entwicklungen der U.S.-?Quiltbooms? der 1870er bis 1930er Jahre sind weitere Schritte zum dritten ?Quiltboom? der 1960er Jahre, wo schlieálich der Art Quilt entsteht. Die Entwicklungen des Art Quilt in der amerikanischen und europ„ischen Szene, die Wandlungsphasen zwischen 1960 bis heute, vervollst„ndigen die Abhandlung unter kulturhistorischen Aspekten einerseits, wie auch pr„gender Knstler, Werke und Ausstellungen.
