“Of course it hurts when buds burst. Otherwise why would spring hesitate? Why would all our fervent longing be bound in the frozen bitter haze? The bud was the casing all winter. What is this new thing, which consumes and bursts? Of course it hurts when buds burst, pain for that which grows and for that which envelops.”

The 2018 Konstfack Degree Exhibition is framed by Swedish poet and novelist Karin Boye’s poem about pain and spring. We read her words, see how creation and life are intertwined. The courage to break boundaries and think in new ways go hand in hand with doubt and hesitation... can I take this step? Will it be any good—does it hold up?

The answer to this years’ 175 graduating students is an unhesitating “yes”! They take their places in Konstfack’s long-standing tradition of making new connections between aesthetics, ethics, design and education that impact our society, yes, even the world. In doing so, they will make an impression in the large and the small, as artists, teachers, architects, craftspeople and designers. Their work and their thoughts are as unfathomably beautiful as spring itself, as forceful and as dramatic. The road here has been long and sometimes painful. But as creation blossoms, it is joy and euphoria that we feel. Spring is here, as is the future.
