Practice-based Research: Manual & Material Culture

In recent times, manual practice is increasingly being addressed again. However, there is a lack of a differentiation of those forms of knowledge associated with craft work. That is why this research project started in November 2014 with the question: “How can manual knowledge find a connection to the world of life and work of the 21st century?” This, among other things, was discussed with experts from craft and design practice, design and research at a public symposium at the New Design University, St. Pölten in cooperation with the University of Vienna. The resulting publication is a reframing of the mentioned symposium held in March 2017, echoing voices and ideas in chronological order, establishing a new scientific print issue format that stimulates future exchanges in academia, industry and craft.
