Abstract [en]

Whose hand is making? And how can we understand craft practices in dialogue with society through making and objects? How do we understand objects that manifest resistance? This dissertation in artistic research explores craft practices within the fields of ceramics and textile, through the method and form of autoethnography, and on the basis of an intersectional perspective. It understands making as embodied experience and knowledge, conditioned, but not always bounded, by societal structures, and it documents the resistance against, and the resilience of, repressive structures, in dialogues and struggles where objects gain agency.

It is an examination that moves between the bookishness of libraries and historical trajectories on the one hand and making as collective practice on the other, the latter represented in what this study defines as case studies of making. The study creates the term “together-making” to describe and analyse collective craft practice as simultaneously a method of research and of making as a potentially political and socially-conscious act.

Through two case studies of making the study assembles an archive of willfulness. In the first case study of making, ceramic practice and historical objects emanating from feminist and anti-slavery movements, are explored through a process of together-making, putting together the exhibition From Pottery to Politics in 2016. In the actual exhibition, further ceramic objects from Swedish twentieth century come into play to re-direct the shape of the exhibition, exemplifying the ways in which this study understands objects as manifest, material politics inciting response.

The second case study of making, takes off from the geographical area known as »de sju häraderna«: a centre for Swedish textile manufacture and home-based industry since the seventeenth century. Focusing on a group of local seamstresses who organized Sweden’s first women’s football series in the 1960s – Öxabäck IF – the study investigates textile objects in dialogue with society reflected through the textile history of labour and feminist political movements in the nineteenth and twentieth century. This case study also documents the process of research through together-making, and the exhibition Öxabäck IF – Without You no Tomorrow, 2016.

Abstract [en]

The text, based on the author's doctoral studies, is closely connected to her participation in the exhibition “Making Knowledge” at Gustavsbergs Konsthall 2012. It provides an account of how crafts can be understood in relation to national identity and mechanisms of exclusionary and inclusionary operation. Of particular interest are the dynamics of hybridity and homelessness, whereby conceptions of tradition are replaced with multiple or “diffracted” structures of practice.

Abstract [sv]

Konsthantverket i vårt senkapitalistiska samhälle är en expanderad diskurs som inkluderar flera typer av DIY, görande, praktiker och material. Vernacular craft syftar till att vidga och fördjupa konsthantverksfältet, ringa in det och lösa upp det och på så sätt skapa nya referenspunkter att arbeta med, och detta genom konsthantverkets praktiker.

Utifrån fönsterbräden, balkonglådor och trädgårdar återspeglas ett mikrokosmos; dessa hetrotoper representerar och har genklang och "är" på så sätt generella praktiker. Det handlar om maktförhållanden, plastblommor, det masstillverkade, världen, traderad kunskap, om det autentiska samt ett arkiv med tusentals bilder.

Abstract [en]

Crafts in our late capitalist society is an expanded discourse which includes several strains of DIY, making, practices and material. Vernacular craft intends to expand and deepen the field of craft, underline it and dissolve it and thereby demand new points of reference to work from, and doing so through the practices of crafts.

From window sills, balcony boxes and gardens, a micro cosmos is reflected; these heterotropes represent and resonate, "are", in this sense, general practices. We are dealing with power relations, plastic flowers, the mass produced, values, traded knowledge, with the authentic - as well as an archive of a thousand pictures.
