ABSTRAKT No. 8 – The Power of Making (English)


The rise of the do-it-yourself culture

After decades of life in the knowledge society, making is becoming the new ideal. More specifically: self-making. Arts and crafts markets are flourishing; knitting, cake-making, welding in the garage have become part of the modern lifestyle. At the same time, the technological advances of 3D printers are raising hopes of a new Industrial Revolution. And it may not be long before these machines will enable us to print everything we need at home – from toys through furniture to groceries. But what does the rediscovery of making actually mean to society, the economy and all of us? Is it hype? Or will the do-it-yourself culture lead to a more sustainable lifestyle in which we will only produce as much as we need?
