Fall 2023/Winter 2024 CONTROL

For this issue of Studio, we’re interested in how power intersects with craft — when it comes to craft, who wields power? And in turn, how does craft exert control? We’re interested in various manifestations of power as it functions within craft industries: from gatekeeping to the “anthropologization” of craft. How is craft caught up in various struggles for and against power? What systems and processes contain power, and how do they serve to exclude or include various groups? What is the relationship between power and objects, and how does this determine value? How do different worldviews assign meaning to craft processes and crafted objects? What role has craft played in domination and/or oppression? We’re looking for articles, reviews, interviews that explore power dynamics and their effects on our material worlds.
