‘About Making’ is project collaboration between Eleena Jamil who is based in Malaysia and Stephen Knott, Abbe Fletcher and Christoph Lueder in the United Kingdom. The project is supported by the Connections Through Culture 2021 arts grant, a programme run by British Council in the UK and East Asia, with the primary objective of supporting exchanges and collaboration between the two regions.
The project explores the different aspects of ‘making’ in art and architecture, while carrying forward the processes and material culture of traditional and contemporary craft in a cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary mix. The idea of making includes the social and cultural processes of making, the networks of makers, and this will be linked to contemporary self-build, craft as an emancipatory and political process.
