Korean Craft 2021: All about Attitude

The theme of the exhibition moves away from crafts ‘of humans, by humans, and for humans’ and seeks horizontal and equal relationships between the numerous agents involved in crafting.

We are living in a moment of extreme crisis in the history of the planet. This crisis asks for a fundamental introspection on humans. Along with the awakening that humans are just one of the many agents in a complex network of life and objects, there are attempts made everywhere to redefine the relationships between objects and nature into a horizontal and equal one.

The attitude that respects and embraces all things other than human is the new ethics and social practice of crafts in this era. At the same time, this may be the way to restore the existence and value of crafts/artists who have been marginalized and isolated by anthropocene and capitalocene.

This exhibition seeks to serve as an opportunity to reflect on both the attitude of crafts and social practices through fundamental introspection on humans that can be sympathized by all the people who are living and suffering in this time of a pandemic crisis.
