With this international group exhibition visual artist and curator Wim Wauman combines the term 'craftsmanship' with its nostalgic sound. There is a critical reference to mass consumption, standardization, counterfeiting and our social vision on this. The exhibition presents a playful, idiosyncratic story with references to older science fiction films, academic literature, current social issues and (human) monkeys.
WORKFLOW is an initiative of Wim Wauman and is part of his doctoral research 'Making Waves: A Play with Arts and Crafts' at the Royal Academy, an investigation into the apparent contradiction between making and thinking. '
