Crafts and innovation have always gone hand in hand. Nowadays a global re-evaluation of craft and craftsmanship is clearly noticeable. This is not a nostalgic return to an idealised past. It is a search to achieve a more sustainable society. Crafts can play a central role in different sciences and innovation.
Scholars from various disciplines have dealt with crafts in their research, sometimes as main topic, sometimes accidental. This exhibition shows photographs by researchers – affiliated to LeidenGlobal partners – that relate to the theme of craftsmanship and innovation through craft.
