The colloquium Tracing Wiener Werkstätte Textiles is organized by the Cotsen Textile Traces Study Center with the Institute of Art History and Museology of the University of Neuch tel, Switzerland, and the Collection and Archive at the University of Applied Arts Vienna in Austria.

The international three-day colloquium Tracing Wiener Werkstätte Textiles encourages research, facilitates critical discussion and supports the next generation of scholars and artists. Established specialists, emerging professionals and students share their recent research and discoveries on Wiener Werkstätte textiles from the Cotsen Textile Traces Study Collection, Collection and Archive at the University of Applied Arts Vienna and related collections in Austria and Switzerland. The Wiener Werkstätte, or Vienna Workshop (1903–1932), brought together artists and designers dedicated to the artistic production of utilitarian items in various media, including metalwork, ceramics and textiles. The workshop was a key participant in the development of modernism, especially with its textile and fashion divisions and the establishment of branches in Berlin, New York and Zurich.

Tracing Wiener Werkstätte Textiles brings together different disciplines, including art and fashion history, gender and museum studies, as well as archival and social sciences.
