Current events have shown that conservative politics are not the same as reactionary politics although they often share political parties. When we realize that craft is inherently conservative, we can also reveal where craft risks being reactionary in its nostalgia. Subsequently we can illustrate craft’s inner logic, and in so doing rid craft’s identity of elements that serve either as nostalgic bid for pre-industrial simplicity or as a tool to be appropriated by consumerist branding falsely appealing to fictive notions of personal authenticity.
