Textiles link us around the globe. We all wear clothing made of textiles.
The textile industry is one of the oldest branches of the production industry. In view of the number of people employed and overall turnover, it is one of the most important economic sectors in the world. It is characterised by the international division of labour and global trade. Millions of people from various cultures and regions are part of this hidden network.
the global skin collects and distributes knowledge and experience on this subject. A wide variety of views will serve to raise awareness of ecological and social connections and thereby contribute to the promotion of sustainable development.

Photographer. He has worked with top models like Natalia Vodianova, Naomi Campbell and Devon Akoi, the U.S. actors Chloë Sevigny and John Malkovich.

The work of the Swiss artist consists of videos, photographs and installations. It was shown worldwide in numerous solo and group exhibitions and attracted international attention. For Pipilotti Rist the task of art is to contribute "to evolution, to encourage the spirit, to ensure a distanced view of social change, to conjure up positive energies to promote the sense and sensibility, to explore ways to destroy stereotypes and prejudices".
Since 2005 he has hosted the show "Sternstunde" on Swiss television. He also works as an editor for DRS2 (Swiss Radio) and maintained the DRS2 theme days "HörPunkt", the "Passage2". He is also responsable for the rubric "Lokaltermin" in the cultural news program "DRS2aktuell" on Swiss radio.
