Hello!

Research & Craft

Renata Dezso

Working at Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design, Renata Dezso examines the methodological approach of Research through Craft&Design with the philosophic dimension of co-Ability. She introduced the term 'co-Ability' rooted in the critical approach of posthuman studies. It serves as a broad umbrella term under which we can reconsider the potentials of various entities (biological, artificial) enhancing the shared competence rather than dwelling on the oppressive nature of human-centred norms. Her various craft works and doctoral research formulating sets of alternative values in everyday life experiences have been exhibited worldwide and won awards, including the Gillo Dorfles Prize / First Prize Trieste Contemporanea Contest in 2022 and EDF and Oracle Award in 2020. Dezsos’ transdisciplinary works, from digital craft to mouth-blown glass, consider the importance of relationality and material embodiment as a way of thinking about the social world. Her series of unpredictable vessels are applied statements of the theoretical position of co-Ability re-engaging with materiality and providing a sense of sharing a common cultural cohesion within generations of craft and culture.
