About thetotalcollapse.org

Total Collapse: Clay in the Contemporary Past features a broad and experimental collection of artists/collaboratives working in the field of contemporary ceramics.

The exhibit, which is organized around themes examining the function of the ceramic item as an anthropological device and early human technology, includes sculpture, performance, and site-specific installation. The exhibition investigates the importance of the ceramic item as a social artifact, but it also questions the function of current mass-produced ceramic products and their influence on future histories.
