Field research project in Oaxaca and Mexico City, done together with Olga Olivares and Sabine Thunberg. We believe in the importance and power of sharing knowledge, experiences and techniques from creatives to creatives across geographical borders. We identified Oaxaca and Mexico City as our sites because of their rich, yet underexposed, craft and artisan traditions, specifically within textile, food, ceramic and jewellery. We were exploring and exchanging knowledge with local makers and conducting our own material, visual and cultural research, thus expanding our existing practice and expertise.
The research was funded by Estrid Ericsons Stiftelse.
