A conversation about the state of artisanal culture in Malaysian cities. It draws figures from the vernacular tradition as well as modern practice, bringing us collision/convergence of ideas and worldviews. As we witness the growth of artisanal workshops, how do we negotiate our pre-conceived ideas about what is modern and traditional, indigenous and foreign - and finally we ask what is the role of artisans in the world of global monoculture?
