Something Stolen / Something New


September 8 - October 15, 2022

In his ongoing research project, Noah Breuer explores the visual legacy of “Carl Breuer and Sons,” his Jewish family’s former textile printing business, founded 1897 in Bohemia and lost in 1939 to Nazi collaborators.

At Atelier Circulaire, Breuer will present artworks he created utilizing a collection of sample swatches and pattern designs sourced from the Czech archives of his family's business. Through his process of digital reclamation and reassembly, Breuer resurrects fragments of pre-war design motifs, creating something new, tangible, and deeply personal in the process. The artworks in this exhibition include print-based works on fabric as well as sculptural glass and cast paper made from reclaimed cotton.
