Vibeke Klint – the queen of minimalist textiles
Vibeke Klint (1927-2019) was of great importance to Danish textile art with her simple, graphic rugs, textiles and site-specific decorations. She also influenced several generations of contemporary weavers through her weaving studio in Taarbæk, where she trained several of the textile designers and artists who have set the tone in the field over the past 30 years. Vibeke Klint started her career as a student with weaving pioneer Gerda Henning, who was a teacher at the School of Arts and Crafts at the Museum of Art and Design in Copenhagen. Even before her graduation in 1949, she was assigned to Gerda Henning's workshop. And when Gerda Henning died suddenly in 1951, her husband, the sculptor Gerhard Henning, offered Vibeke Klint to take over the weaving studio if she moved home from France, where she stayed to learn French tapestry techniques.
