About How to
Thanks to platforms like YouTube, and through self-posted videos, people from all over the world can now explain how to perform various tasks – simple as well as complex. Through these videos, the “secrets” of craft and the knowledge of “making” have become accessible to everyone, everywhere, at any time.

The role of design schools has changed, as they no longer hold the exclusive rights to knowledge and skills. The manner in which people learn and teach is constantly evolving.

Graduating students of the Bezelal Academy of Arts and Design were asked to create a work in response to the “how to fold a t-shirt” viral video and, later, to create and upload their own videos. Thus, their works become part of an ongoing dialogue – one more link in the ever- growing chain of creations.
