STUDIO WORK

Artists and designers often take the lead in designing and testing new alternatives, while the cultural field seeks to hone in on innovative practices such as cooperatives, commons, alternative financing. Studio Work explores creative, inspiring models that can point the way to more efficient, more ecological and sustainable forms of production. What are the possibilities of the local and the circular economy? How can the link between digital and traditional production methods be rethought? What is the role of art and design in the changing practices of work, production and creation?
