Made in: Crafts and Design Narratives in Austria
2. Oct 2020–23. Jan 2021
In October, an exhibition entitled “Made in: Crafts and Design Narratives” which ran at MAO earlier in the year, opened in Werkraum Bregenzerwald.
The exhibition is the result of a series of activities carried out over course of two years by the Museum of Arts and Crafts and OAZA from Croatia; Museum of Architecture and Design, Slovenia; Nova Iskra and Mikser in Serbia; and Werkraum Bregenzerwald – all under the general initiative of the MADE-IN platform. As a handicraft archive (Handwerksarchiv), the exhibition in the form of photographic documentation and stories shows the work of 40 craftspeople from Bregenzerwald, Croatia, Slovenia and Serbia. The selection of exhibited craftspeople was based on their excellence in craftsmanship and the level of threat to their craft, the representative nature of their work for each region, and their geographical location.
