Fried describes, maybe without knowing it, a transgression from the authoritarian art-object of the Modernism described by Clement Greenberg, to a fragmented, multifaceted Post-modernism.

Tiravanija had his breakthrough in the early nineties with works such as Untitled Free. For this work, which was exhibited at Gallery in New York in , Tiravanija created a functional kitchen within the gallery walls and served Thai curry. The kitchen — the pots and pans, the oven etc. Usually it has a starting point in the material and, even though an idea or a function will precede the actual making of the object, the object itself is made when a maker, designer or manufacturer forms the material into something tangible. An equally important aspect is how and what the object communicates.
Gaitan states in a discussion with Christer Dynna published in this issue of NorwegianCrafts. The term social objects once again makes me think of Bourriaud and the aspect of relations. Even in studio-craft, which may be more about the object as an aesthetic object, the use-value is implied, and it is illustrated in this issue of NorwgianCrafts.
