In this project, Dogma film and ceramic art were developed into interdependent art objects, exhibitions, and short films. The art project Blue Collar – White Collar started with the artists’ interest in the global concern about the fourth industrial revolution, often referred to as ‘the rise of the robots’, where old professions seem to disappear, and central tasks are robotised. However, there seems to be signs of a new role for the skills of handicraft in society. The short film Rhythm of the Hands documented parts of this development through the artists’ reflections on the role of their contemporary ceramic practice. The materialised results of ceramic art and Dogma film explain in a complementary way the development of the new roles of craft in society and of Dogma used as production principle in a craft context. Through an intersubjective documentation of insiders’ perspectives in a collaborative art project the case shows a basic understanding of being an artist where a diversity of art practices can expand into new fields in continuously new ways. This can contribute to new ways of co-creation and collaboration in working life.
