Feature Presentation How can textile processes and artistic dialogues be used to create a space for cultural, social and ecological responsibility? Natural indigo teems with life – animating narratives of circulation, tradition, craft and history. In this Feature Presentation, indigo visionaries Aboubakar Fofana and Karin Altmann discuss their relationship with the medium that encompasses academic research, conceptual artmaking and subsequent modes of presentation. Their interdisciplinary and collaborative practice engenders a mindful respect for the living material, our society and the environment – exemplifying a relationship with our surroundings that is delicate, symbiotic and mutually respectful. https://www.mill6chat.org/speakers-winter-programme-2019/#20091
