INTERTWINGLED – The Role of the Rug in Arts, Crafts and Design, 21 March - 9 April 2022


Everything is deeply intertwingled. The word was coined in 1960 by the American sociologist and philosopher Ted Nelson to define the complexity of the interconnections in the field of knowledge, where there are no isolated subjects, but there is knowledge as a whole, made up of myriad connections and cross-relationships, which cannot be disentangled and neatly divided into a hierarchical order, but must be explored in many dimensions. Only in this way can the connections and transformations of our world be made visible.


Curated by Martí Guixé and Inga Knölke, INTERTWINGLED – The Role of the Rug in Arts, Crafts and Design offers a disruptive interpretation of the interconnected world we live in through a selection of over 80 works of artists including Silvia Giambrone, Bice Lazzari, Carla Accardi, Alighiero Boetti, Maria Lai and Ettore Sottsass.
