KNOW HOW, the theme of the fifth Tallinn applied art triennial, will challenge participants to cast aside artist-, designer- and producer-centred approaches, to share their professional know-how, and to offer exhibition visitors an opportunity to (re-)create the items themselves. The exhibition welcomes high-quality designs where the designer is behind the concept and form – but the actual production of the items makes a transition to the users. Artists will be requested to submit to the exhibition a (sample) work as well as instructions on how to make it. Both will be put on display. The instructions should not merely be a description of how the work was created, but rather a manual for the exhibition visitor explaining how to re-create the object. Text and photographs can be used, as well as freehand and computer graphics, stencilling, and many other techniques. The exhibition will also have a website where virtual visitors will be able to download manuals. The exhibition catalogue will feature the sample works as well as instructions on how to make them.
