Eight interviews with scientists and craftsmen - Ludwig Kyral, Annette Precht/Sandra Thaler, Roman Sandgruber, Martin Schreier, Richard Sennett, Akio Tanaka, Christian Witt-Dörring and Peter Zumthor - shed light on this area of ​​tension in a multifaceted way. In addition, public appreciation, material culture and future-oriented strategies of craftsmanship are discussed.

Published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name (December 14, 2016–April 9, 2017) at the MAK.
