In Sweden, one of the most internet-connected countries
in the world, we are witnessing a resurgence of interest
in handicraft traditions, which are being adapted in new
ways in art, fashion and design. Craft skills and tactile
intelligence are becoming catalysts for creative innovation
and an important counterbalance in an increasingly digital society.
Next Level Craft is not your typical handicraft exhibition
– it’s a cross-disciplinary fairytale that has its own soundtrack and
music video. The exhibition presents works by more than 40 crafters,
artists and designers from all over Sweden. The youngest artists featured
here are in their early twenties, and the oldest is nearly 90 years old.
