Contribute In Parallel
Within this digital architecture you will find a multitude of manifested matter put forth as a way of exploring life through textile, ceramics, glass, jewellery and corpus.
Thinking through parallels means moving along in close proximity, searching for similarities and leaving respectful air between the lines. Rather than, prove or dis-approve, the multitude of statements of these parallel tracks lets all participants contribute with facts, knowledge, feelings and more.
Craft, Applied arts, Material based practice, you name it. In the different programs offered by the Department of Crafts at Konstfack the students work literally in parallel, side by side, in the advanced work-shops, where exchange is key and collaboration is in the making.
To be involved in making means you develop an intimate relationship to the material, but also to the history of making and the knowledge of makers far away in time and geography. Craft is not one field, but is embedded in all fields and economies and this is where you will find our graduates in the future.
The parallel and diverse practices you find here have one thing in common, the practice of Empathy for the material, the tradition, other makers, future souls and for all of us who need this empathy in practice to re-learn to live together.
