Published with an exhibition at Bonniers Konsthall in Stockholm, this volume documents artworks which demonstrate how the distinction between form and content is difficult to maintain. Moreover, these works show that content also comes out of the material, and is not just communicated through it. Creation, processes, and becoming are all emphasised in an homage to craftsmanship and exploration of material changeability. There are also social and political dimensions, wherein several of the artists focus on the transference of knowledge, generosity, and alternative forms of organisation. With work by Sheila Hicks, Abdoulaye Konaté, Lee Mingwei, Petrit Halilaj, and more.
