We are happy to invite you to the international seminar FABRIK at Gustavsbergs Konsthall, October 3, 2019. The seminar is part of the exhibition FABRIK that will focus on narratives around sites of former craft industries. It is also part of and starting point for the Stockholm Craft Week programme, October 3-6.
Gustavsbergs Konsthall is located in an area that previously housed the famous Gustavsberg porcelain factory. The history of the porcelain factory remains apparent through the artists and craftspeople who currently work in the area, together with the small-scale porcelain manufactory. The participating artists in FABRIK are in different ways exploring memories and meanings of such places. The exhibition and seminar will suggest starting points for thinkingand imagining the past, present and futures of places of deindustrialisation.
