About Crafting Conversations
Crafting Conversations is a platform and approach to investigate situations of knowledge exchange as a matter for design. This means, to shift focus from WHAT to HOW knowledge is exchanged, transferred, created and thus shapes/influences WHAT content can be said, perceived, shared and created.
The Symposium “Crafting Situations – Conversations exploring public boundaries in the (present pandemic impacted) city” is the result of a collaboration between the Estonian Academy of Arts, Tallinn and HDK Valand – Academy of Art and Design, Gothenburg. It is conceived and mentored by Sandra Nuut, and Prof. Judith Seng, Berlin/Gothenburg. HDK Valand MFA Design students have developed scores and formats of knowledge exchange and the students of Estonian Academy of Arts have curated topics through the provided formats. The final contributions for the Symposium have been developed through a collaborative rehearsing week in which the relation between HOW and WHAT has been explored by the students.
The Symposium “Crafting Situations – Conversations exploring public boundaries in the (present pandemic impacted) city” takes place as part of the public programme of the exhibition Acting Things VIII – Silent Conversations by Judith Seng and curated by Sandra Nuut at the Tallinn Art Hall, 5 June–1 August, 2021.
