The TEXTile Manifestoes is an interdisciplinary anthology that assembles and interweaves questions related to textile art, fashion and textuality into broader political, sociological, philosophical, art history and historical frameworks thereby expanding their range of textural interconnections. The original project “TEXTile Manifestoes” emerged out of a cross-disciplinary collaboration between several studios at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague. Students from different disciplines worked together to weave textiles and discourses alike to design their manifestoes by combining fashion collections with burning contemporary issues such as mass surveillance, artificial intelligence or virtual reality but also to more private struggles of identity, memory and (mental) health. The students’ works were later complemented by and (re)contextualised with international contributions ranging from ancient Andean textile studies to neuropsychoanalysis or from literary and art criticism to aesthetics and musicology.
