Cities, particularly in the West, are increasingly removed from the means of production upon which urban lifestyles depend. Products of mass manufacture appear as branded commodities with little reference to their origins. The trend to offshoring craft work offers a more transparent relation between city and village where the back-story’ of how an object is produced contributes to its final value. It is a creative challenge for designers and artisans to keep alive the dialogue between city and village.
This chapter is based on a keynote lecture A Race to the Top: Transnational Collaborations in Craft and Design’ presented at Collaboration in Experimental Design Research conference COFA August (2010) and is closely based on Murray (2010). Thanks to Elizabeth Grierson for valuable comments.
