A Reader Textile Legacies: Now and Future CHAT Discussion Forum 2018

The conversations of the third instalment of CHAT’s 2018 Discussion Forum are collected in this publication and edited as transcriptions, experimental essays, criticism and journal entries. Edited by Claudia Pestana, the publication gathers the many queries and proposals from a varied and enthusiastic group of practitioners . We hope the reader becomes part of the conversations on the future of textiles that CHAT aims to foster.
