Sometimes time lacks significance. All that matters is the goal in shape of the perfect art work, or the excitement of exploring a material and its limits, or the satisfaction of living one's dream. Slow Art is the concept used by Nationalmuseum to define a contemporary movement within the crafts and applied arts. Like the Slow Food movement, Slow Art challenges industrial mass production, short-term mass consumption as well as the general Quality of Life in our contemporary society.
This book was published in conjunction with the exhibition “Slow Art”, Nationalmuseum 10 May 2012 – 3 February 2013.
