MADE IN addresses the problems of hyperproduction and distribution of goods of questionable ethics in contemporary society, and with it connected the disappearance of local craft knowledge, communities and cultural identities. It also addresses the topics of resources, origin, purpose and sustainability of our artificial environment and its relationship to design. The project is envisioned as an international platform for research, design and heritage that acts as: a digital repository of crafts and design project and knowledge, network for craftspeople, designers, theoreticians, curators, scholars, a medium that raises awareness of the alternative models of production based on co-creative and collaborative practices, and a promotional channel that encourages critical discourse about the preservation of local heritage. The results of the first phase of the project (2018 – 2021) come in the form of an Crafts Archive which presents the works and histories of almost 40 craft businesses in Austria, Slovenia, Croatia and Serbia. Departing from this, project groups of these artisans and creatives from all of Europe have dealt with specific themes and challenges of their regions. The results of their work in various shapes and forms are presented online and through a travelling exhibition, followed by a printed book. The whole project was followed by a series of discursive programmes called Dialogues.
