How can historical Amish quilts and contemporary art enter into a dialogue with one another that is not limited to merely formal similarities? This question is addressed in the catalogue accompanying a special exhibition at the Staatliches Textil- und Industriemuseum in Augsburg (State Textile and Industry Museum; tim). The unique juxtaposition of original Amish quilts from the time between 1890 and 1950 with high-quality works by contemporary artists breaks down boundaries between genres, time, and space. The focus is on a search for answers to fundamental questions of human existence. What thus result are illuminating insights into the foundations and abysses of life today, traditional moral concepts, and contemporary art.
