The Decorating Dissidence Podcast!
This season has been a labour of love over the past year for Decorating Dissidence, an interdisciplinary project exploring the political, aesthetic & conceptual qualities of craft from modernism to the contemporary. Outside of the project’s online journal and exhibitions, we wanted to create a space where we could share stories and invite conversations about crafts directly from practitioners themselves. Across six episodes, the team behind the project and invited hosts speak with artists, curators, writers and academics to discuss a variety of topics across craft – from exploring weaving and the Bauhaus legacy, to investigating fashion as a medium for world-building for contemporary African labels. The introductory episode covers the origin and aims of Decorating Dissidence, why we wanted to make a podcast series and what to expect from the episodes to come.
