Mythos Handwerk. Zwischen Ideal und Alltag

€25.45 (excl. VAT)

What is craft? Skilled craftsmanship, tools, techniques, professions and trades are common notions. But what is craft as myth? The French philosopher Roland Barthes defines the term myth as a specific way of speaking about something, as a carrier of messages. With the collected knowledge of three museums and nuanced essays, authors from a variety of professions trace craft as myth in all its facets. They expertly illuminate aspects of craftsmanship from diverse perspectives and respond to the growing social interest in this topic.
