Fabric design 1987-2017
at Neues Museum Staatliches Museum für Kunst und Design Nuremberg
from 29th September to 1st November 2017,
Opening: Thursday 28th September, 7 p.m.
Ulf Moritz is a highly innovative fabric designer and is one of the most important designers of his sector. The continuous change is the most remarkable part of his textile work, his way of dealing with material in particular.
From copper wire to horsehair, from burnout fabrics to laser cut fabrics – his combinations of technical refinement and novel material usage, create textiles of great effect and liveliness. The cooperation with SAHCO began in 1985, which, until then, was unique. His extravagant collections are surprising every year, even beyond the sector. Because they are different.
Under the aspect of innovation in materials, Neues Museum in Nuremberg now presents from 28th September to 1st November 2017 extraordinary fabric designs from the past three decades out of his wide source of creative work in a room installation, designed by the artist himself.
