Call for Papers

Relational Craft and Design - Issue #4 Current Call for papers

Relational Craft and Design

craft +design enquiry is currently calling for papers that relate to the theme of 'relational craft and design'.

Despite the vigorous debate surrounding the disciplinary parameters and practice roles for craft and design in recent years, their relationship is characterised by wildly divergent interpretations. 'Craft' has become a significant and weighty word again at a time when the meaning of 'design' is shifting both within and outside the visual arts. Today we note everything from drug design to policy design, where 'design' indicates a higher level of consideration, conceptual and strategic thinking. Within this context, contemporary craft might appear as specific and cultural, while design's seeming ubiquity carries certain risks.
