HOW MUCH “DIGITAL” DOES HANDICRAFT NEED?

Digitalization doesn’t stop at traditional handicrafts and their circulation. Is this
revolution a curse or a blessing? Chance or challenge? This was the issue
dealt with by the wienerSITZgruppe in their panel discussion before a wellattended audience, and they put the ideas to the test in examples: Via video those interested could inform themselves online throughout the entire festival duration and fashion a prepared work piece. As to the question how digital knowledge sharing in the art of wallpapering should be in the early 21st century,
the last word doesn’t seem to have been spoken. But a start has been made!
