Craft and modernity meet at MAK's new exhibition handWERK.
The very informative and relevant exhibition handWERK at the
MAK, with the undertitle Traditional Skills in the Digital Age is a great way
of reflecting on the significance and status of handicraft as an integral
component of material culture and cultural identity. Encompassing handicraft
from historical times to current European perspectives, the exhibit examines
how handicraft can help preserve natural resources, it explores new
developments on the interface to digital technologies, and presents
masterpieces from a range of craft disciplines. Definitely make time for a
visit before the exhibit closes!
Until 9 April 2017
