Mass production and mass consumption are rapidly turning precious raw materials into waste. The limits of this linear system have clearly been exceeded. The need for a system in which resources can circulate is increasing.

Recycling seems to be the dominant strategy to transform waste into new materials and products. However, a lot of quality and energy is lost in that process.

At the same time, new initiatives are emerging that transform industrial waste streams into new products. These Post-Industrial Crafts favour reuse, repair and customization over recycling. Taking industrial offcuts and post-consumer products as a starting point often results in a unique and rough aesthetic that references the previous life of the materials and products.

The exhibition provides an overview of experiments, products and projects that are the result of Post-Industrial Crafts. These initiatives are small-scale but illustrate a more sustainable relationship with the products we use.

All works were created by students, teachers, alumni and researchers associated with the Product Design program of the Luca School Of Arts in Genk. The concept of Post-Industrial Crafts will be further researched and developed in this context.
