PBR – MMC Symposium

Though handicraft practice is recently discussed again a differentiated view on those forms of knowledge that are related to handcraft is missing. The research project “Practice Based Research – Manual & Material Culture” of the New Design University (NDU), St. Pölten, refers to this gap. The research question here 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?“ Will be discussed  with experts from crafts, design and research at the New Design University, St. Pölten, in cooperation with the University of Vienna, at a public symposium on March 9, 2017.
