Intro
Cold and hard, warm and soft, insightful, non-normative for sure, non-binary, political, honest, perhaps fluttery but also sharp-minded and I think - also cute. In short, the 2018 Konstfack Degree Show will be a very unique blend since the students' works and thoughts are as outrageously beautiful as spring itself, equally powerful and dramatic.

This year the Konstfack Degree Show is framed by Swedish poet and novelist Karin Boye’s poem about pain and spring, about how creation and life are intertwined. The courage to break boundaries and think in new ways go hand in hand with doubt and hesitation... can I take this step? Will it be any good – does it hold up? And yes, it does. The participating studentsrest easy with confidence, as Boye talks about in her most famous poem, where the first verse says: Of course it hurts when buds burst. Otherwise why would spring hesitate? Why would all our fervent longing be bound in the frozen bitter haze? The bud was the casing all winter. What is this new thing, which consumes and bursts? Of course it hurts when buds burst, pain for that which grows and for that which envelops.

The Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes represented include; Graphic Design & Illustration, Industrial Design, Interior Architecture & Furniture Design, Ceramics & Glass, Fine Art, Textiles, Ädellab and Teacher Education programme in Visual Arts.
It's a degree show of the graduates from all disciplines.
