Jorunn Veiteberg invited to conduct he prestigious Peter Dormer Lecture
Jorunn Veiteberg, professor II and Head of the research project Art Value at Bergen National Academy of the Arts, has been invited to conduct The Peter Dormer Lecture 2011.
The title of her lecture is "From making to manufracture. New Working Strategies in the Crafts". The lecture is based on the exhibition "Thing Tang Trash. Up-cycling in contemporary ceramics" at Permanenten, West Norway Museum of Decorative Art, and is a continuation of subjects discussed during the conference "Making or Unmaking?" hosted by Art Value in Bergen in October 2011.
The Peter Dormer Lecture is Britain's most significant annual crafts event. It is held in honour of the writer and critic Peter Dormer, who died in 1996. The lecture is organized by a committee of former friends and colleagues and hosted by the Royal College of Art. The purpose of this lecture is a continuation of Peter Dorner's dedication to craft in a social context and perspective.
The lecture is conducted for an invited audience on 5 December 2011 at the Royal College of Art in London.
(Manufracture is not misspelt, but represents a newly invented word constructed from manufacture and fracture, hence manufracture.)
