Lust for Wool – Haptically perceptible pictograms

Up until seventy to a hundred years ago, Nomads – a culture without architecture and the written word – created arresting objects of art. Patterns and motives, but also proportions and colours, were embedded in climate, era, culture and religion, often representing a legible pictogram. These carpets were never geared towards the market or decoration; they were articles of daily use or ritual objects. Some remind us of works of classic modernity and contemporary art, raising the question to what extend these anonymous works of art rank behind famous oil paintings.
