ABSTRACT

In short, we are facing the end of ‘craft’. One can no longer define the ‘craft’ in relations with the fine art or design as the concept of fine art and design has developed through the modernization. It is impossible to frame the new discourse of contemporary ‘craft’ by the hierarchical comparison with the fine art or with the design. Therefore, what to do after the end of ‘craft’ is to examine the new system of objects that would assist the ‘craft’ rearranged and reconstructed. Requiring to trace the origin of ‘craft’, it is also critical to examine how the ‘craft’ today has established, contextualized, and characterized. The new framework of contemporary ‘craft’ discourse will be constructed when the ‘craft’ analyzes its relationships with the modernity and its relationships with that of fine art. It is also urgent to evaluate what has been excluded and what has been preserved for last two to three hundred years. Therefore, constructing the new framework of contemporary ‘craft’ discourse is to explore outside the box related to the post-modern discourse. Furthermore, it is necessary to overcome the previously affected norms, to recognize the diversity and possibility of object today, and to pursue to reinterpret the system and order of object.
