Workshop themes:

The themes for this upcoming workshop centers around post industrial industry and alternative ways of exposure for ceramics. The craft maker/ceramic artist as a cultural entrepreneur or worker and how ceramic artists have previously had strong professional identity related to the industry. The ceramic industry is now decreasing rapidly in many European countries compared to before. How does young ceramic artists see themselves today? Many galleries and traditional exhibition spaces are closing and new exposure forms occur. Artists are using alternative forms of exposure to show their work, in the streets or as happenings, in pop up galleries or otherwise, which is far away from the white plinths in traditional galleries. (Quoted from European Ceramic Context 2010 website)
