Transformation – crafts at the crossroads brings a layered story of crafts, metamorphosis, and contemporary entanglements. It exhibits the results of MADE IN activities – crafts mapping, workshop, residency – implemented in Serbia, but at the same time places them in a direct communication with the rich collection of Museum of Applied Art in Belgrade.

Exhibition opens the conversation of the meaning of historical transformation, of gender, generational and utility transfer of knowledge and its role in envisioning new futures. Intentionally, the focus is placed on the meanings and possibilities that the notions of circular, sustainable and adaptability have in a locally specific context, with a wish to provide mindful translation of their meaning for the benefit of all. Unexpected forms, materials and techniques intertwine and transform what we know of crafts, heritage, and their contemporary possibilities at the crossroads of new needs, prospects, and societal demands. Transformation is understood as a necessity, with its actual path yet to be determined.
