Product Description

Publication documenting Judith Raum’s solo exhibition at Pavillon, Lucca, Italy, May-September 2012.

During the Middle Ages in Europe, the city of Lucca in Tuscany was the most important center for the silk industry. Textile companies from Lucca were among the largest corporations in the region. Most of the family-owned companies were active both in the textile sector and in international banking activities. At the same time, it was in the Tuscany region that workers’ revolts took place, who, for the first time in world history, managed to have their demands documented in written form. Raum’s works analyze the close relationship between textile production and banking business and between the texture of fabric and political thinking, adopting imagery and gestures of the time to look for moments of how emancipation takes form.

Judith Raum (*1977) is a visual artist living in Berlin. In her work, she investigates qualities of subject-object relationship through painting, objects, performing, writing and interviewing.
