Material Utopias


Louise Schouwenberg (Ed.)

Contributions by Max Bruinsma, Amanda du Preez, Domeniek Ruyters, Louise Schouwenberg, Aaron Schuster, Tamar Shafrir Edited by Louise Schouwenberg Sandberg Series n°3 Published by Sandberg Instituut and Sternberg Press

In the slipstream of conceptual art, the intimate interweaving of meaning and materialization in art and design came to be discredited in the second half of the twentieth century. The master’s program Material Utopias at the Sandberg Instituut put an end to this tradition by abolishing the unproductive hierarchy separating “concept” and “making,” “content” and “process.” In this publication, various authors reflect on the history of dematerialization and deskilling, the manifold meanings of materiality in art and design, and the challenges for education when the innovative power of the artistic process is celebrated.
