25th Zeughausmesse – Arts and Crafts Days hosted at KühlhausBerlin 13th -16th of October 2022
The 25th Zeughausmesse presents a variety of high-quality art and craft objects meant to elevate daily life experiences: contemporary jewellery made with unusual materials from feathers, parchment or buffalo horn to stainless steel and precious metals; mouth-blown glass objects and vases; hand-knotted carpets and pil-lows; hand-crafted leather shoes; wood-turned oak vessels; sustainable storage containers made from birch bark, and many other fascinating objects. This year’s Zeughausmesse promises to be an exciting expedition for the curious mind.
Approximately 100 craft artists will present their work in person, ready to give insight into a vast spectrum of often rare processes, their search for expressive materials and development of their unique creative practice. The Zeughausmesse remains the largest selection of high-quality applied art in one place that Berlin has to offer.
Students of the department of product design/glass/ceramics at Burg Giebichenstein in Halle will present the results of their academic year in two exhibitions: “Contain” centres around vessels – how they may be used and thought of, especially considering design questions such as the dynamics of two matching parts of a container, how they fit together and relate to each other. “Delicious” focuses on gastronomy and food presentation, especially the search for innovative creations in porcelain and glass with a new look, feel and use.
At this year’s Zeughausmesse, the Berliner Volksbank will present its annual Award for Applied Arts once again. A jury consisting of museum directors, gallerists, university professors, journalists, artists and other experts usually chooses four artists among all exhibitors who have distinguished themselves uniquely in their work. Such an award often serves as an important milestone in an artist’s career development.
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: The 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). Berliner Volkbank, Art Aurea, Delinat, Götze, Handwerk und Design München, HOME, Top Magazin Berlin and Wohn!Design are supporting partners of Zeughausmesse 2022. The fair has been hosted at the Deutsches Historisches Museum since 2004. However, the museum is currently undergoing extensive renovations and Zeughausmesse has therefore moved to KühlhausBerlin for this year. The organizers are currently searching for a new museum to partner with Zeughausmesse in the future.
