Topic: Collective Crafting
In recent years within the art/craft movement the call for transdisciplinary collaboration and artistic research has intensified. With ongoing technological acceleration and postcolonial discourses, the rigid divisions of disciplines are being disrupted, leaving makers and artists confused and at times community-less.
How can we, through collective crafting – whether it be through meaningful conversations, supporting communities, or developing accessible spaces – continue recontextualising and subverting current power structures?
Is cross-pollination a productive methodology in executing these changes, and why? What is the potential and possible futures for art/craft?
Undisciplined invites a panel of four local and international professionals across art, craft, architecture, and design to unpack their perspectives on these pressing questions, to share their connections to craft and have a cross-pollinating conversation.

Crafting conversations is a social gathering around the joint of craft.
Barklund & Co and Undisciplined – take a glimpse of what’s going on at this year’s Stockholm Craft Week and discuss the future of craft together with surprise guests. For a day, the gallery will turn into a space (with a bar) full of unexpected encounters and new ideas inspired by a collective conversation piece that will emerge during the evening.
Co-organized by the current students and fresh graduates of the CRAFT! program at Konstfack, University of Arts, Crafts and Design we welcome the general public and active professionals to a series of informal reflective discussions on a variety of topics stemming directly from current craft practices. The exhibition space will transform into a buzzing hub for a number of curious talks and meetings instigated by the works of contributing students and graduates.
