Post-Industrial Crafts

About

Mass production and mass consumption are rapidly reducing precious resources to waste. The limits of this linear system have clearly been exceeded. The need for a system in which raw materials can circulate is increasing. Recycling seems to be the perfect strategy, with residual streams being processed on an industrial scale into new raw materials. However, a great deal of quality and energy is lost in this process. At the same time, many initiatives are emerging on the fringe that transforms industrial waste streams into quality products. These Post-Industrial Crafts are small-scale but illustrate a more sustainable relationship with our products in which reuse, repair and customization of industrial waste streams are standing ahead. The choice of industrial residues as raw material often results in a quirky and raw aesthetic that accentuates the second life of a material. The exhibition provides an overview of experiments, products and projects that are the result of a Post-Industrial Craft process. All works are created by students, teachers, alumni and researchers connected to the Product Design program at the Luca School Of Arts in Genk. The concept of Post-Industrial Craft will also be further explored and developed in this context.
