PBR – MMC 2

The central research question of the project “Practice Based Research – Manual & Material Culture” of the New Design University (NDU), St. Pölten is:

How can knowledge of craftsmanship from the second half of the 20th century be connected to the changing life and work environment of the 21st century?

On the bases of this research question, the research project is divided into two chronological-historical
spheres: the 20th and the 21st century. Within the framework of the second project phase, craftsmen and creative professions in the 21st century will be examined. Finally, the different "craft generations" are elaborated and linked.
