Intro
Documents on Contemporary Crafts is a book series published by Norwegian Crafts in collaboration with arnoldsche Art Publishers. The series provides a critical reflection of contemporary crafts in a wider context and in doing so asks questions about the ties between contemporary craft, fine art and design, thus helping to redefine the concept of crafts as such.
Box-set with 5 volumes:
  • Education, learning, and skills in the book no. 1: Museum for Skills.
  • Materiality, making, and technology in the book no. 2: Materiality Matters.
  • Curating, exhibition-making in the book no. 3: Crafting Exhibitions.
  • Private, personal and museum collecting in the book no. 4 On Collecting.
  • Aesthetics, philosophy, and epistemology in the book no. 5 Material Perceptions.
