Om Katarina Andersson
I am a senior lecturer and programme director for MA Crafts since 2016. I am an artist and designer and my work extend between sculptural objects and tableware. Ceramics and glass are my main materials. I am interested in semiotics, the relation between materials, objects in relation to space and objects as mediators.
Previously I have worked as a curator and project leader for various crafts projects. I worked as a senior lecturer at Konstfack at the Ceramic and Glass department, where I also led a pilot project in artistic research “Keramiska väggmaterial i offentlig miljö” and investigated the possibility to establish a Ceramic Resource Center. During the Gothenburg Design Festival 2018 I curated the conference “Education for the Future? - Challenges and Visions for Higher Education in Crafts and Design” a collaboration between Göteborgs Slöjdförening and HDK. https://gothenburgdesignfestival.se/events/education-for-the-future-cha…
