About „Handmade in Germany“:
“Handmade in Germany” is displaying masterpieces of 150 German manufactories, artisans and designers. The international exhibition presents a selection of contemporary high-quality products from Germany: hand-made precious objects and cultural assets manufactured in Germany. Germany has many good manufactories producing high-quality products. The reason for this is the historical tradition of German craftsmanship. The training – from apprentice to journeyman to master – is unique in the world; its purpose is to achieve a broad access to traditional knowledge as well as a great depth in the field, which makes handicrafts one of the most diverse and innovative sectors of the national economy. The “Handmade in Germany” exhibition uses selected exhibits to show what an important part handicrafts, including in the spirit of artistic movements such as the Werkbund and the Bauhaus, play in Germany’s cultural heritage. Exhibitors include world-renowned luxury brands, superb manufactories, individual designers and award-winning art studios – it is precisely this mix of old and young, well known and insider knowledge, which makes the exhibition, which was over two years in preparation, so appealing. “Handmade in Germany” is a journey through the objects and people of modern and traditional Germany, from those of the Alpine foothills of Bavaria to the Frisian Islands of the North Sea.
