Klaas Kuiken

Klaas Kuiken's works stem from a fascination with the creative process and its influence on the final result. The programme How It's Made on the Discovery Channel is one of his greatest sources of inspiration. This program sparked a fascination for mass production in Klaas Kuiken. The question 'What does mass production mean for the identity of products?' became a central issue. Can the production process of bulk products also be implemented to create deviating products? Can a production process give identity to a product?

Klaas highlights another side of production; where the other exhibitors dive into production processes, Klaas examines the outcome of these. Klaas explores how the worlds of production and craft can be merged together. This creates processes in which individuality and standardization are converged into one product.
