Arts and Crafts at the Highest Level
This year’s Zeughausmesse will take place from the 16th to the 19th of November 2023 at KühlhausBerlin. Approximately 85 craft artists will present their ideas, products and perspectives. Expect a selection of high-quality applied arts showcasing exceptional creativity, an eye for aesthetics and remarkable skill. Two design universities will show their students’ work at Zeughausmesse.
Fresh Talents is a new initiative to support young craft artists. Newcomer artists and designers of any creative discipline who have not been active for more than 5 years in their field and have not exhibited at Zeughausmesse before, were invited to apply for a substantially subsidised display stand. This year’s jury has selected Itamar Zion Yehiel (itamar-yart.de), Laura Stolz (laurastolz.com) und Gunther Pfeffer (guntherpfeffer.com) for this programme.
For the first time, Berlin’s Lionsclub Preußen von Humboldt will award a prizefor sustainable aesthetics, NatureArt, valued at 1500 € to one exhibitor at Zeughausmesse. In addition, Lionsclub will be collecting donations for a charitable cause during the fair. Lions International is a world-wide union of more than 1,4 million members, relying heavily on volunteer work to confront global issues and help those in need.
Berliner Volksbank will present its annual Award for Applied Arts for the 19th time. An expert jury will select four winners for among all exhibitors who have distinguished themselves uniquely in their work: The first prize will receive 1300€, second prize 1000€, third prize 700€ and the fourth prize 500€.
Two student exhibitions are presenting young perspectives and innovative design solutions: HAPPY TREE by Detmold School of Design (University of Applied Sciences and Arts Ostwestfalen-Lippe) and CRAFT – Common Ground by Weissensee Art Academy Berlin.
This year’s 85 exhibiting artists will show a wide variety of high-quality art across all applied art disciplines – from jewellery, tableware, glass, wood, hat making and interior design to ceramic art, textile design, bags, fashion and leather work. Most exhibitors are from Germany, with about half living and working in Berlin. International artists from Finland, Holland and Austria will also exhibit their work.
Unique, hand-crafted works by members of the Berufsverband Angewandte Kunst Berlin-Brandenburg (Applied Arts Association Berlin and Brandenburg) can now also be found online:
Zeughausmesse Onlineshop allows visitors to discover and purchase a selection of high-quality craftsmanship all year round.
Zeughausmesse is organized by Berufsverband Angewandte Kunst Berlin-Brandenburg e.V. (Applied Arts Association Berlin and Brandenburg).
