“Quilt #01-#30 presents a series of quilts—silkscreen printed fabrics—(2013–ongoing), by Philipp Gufler. By combining text and image, Philipp Gufler's series of works refers to artists, writers, LGBTIQ+ magazines and lost queer spaces, which are often omitted from the usual history books. The subjects that are central to Gufler’s quilts are closely related to his own artistic practice and interests, but also his personal life.”

A series of 30 reproduced printed quilts that celebrate and commemorate friends and figures from the queer scene in and outside Germany, each quilt is accompanied by images or text fragments from the work of the subject of that particular quilt, in doing so, Gufler interweaves past and present voices, allowing the reader to see the contemporary relevance of the past while at the same time placing the present in a historical context; with an essay by Laurie Cluitmans, curator of contemporary art at the Centraal Museum in Utrecht, text in English and German, soft cover, 29,5 x 16,5 cm, 208 not numbered pages, Munich 2020
