Description

The term ‘arts and crafts’ poses as many questions as there are preconceived opinions about it. It is associated with individuality, uniqueness, a multi-perspectival nature, decorative potential, artistic quality and a high experiential value. This publication, accompanying the exhibition of the same name, examines the developments in arts and crafts from the second half of the twentieth century, as exemplified by the collection of the Museum Angewandte Kunst. Scale reproductions of plates, furniture, cutlery, jewellery and vases highlight their surprising variegation in form. In their essays, the ten authors encounter diverse approaches to the broad terrain of arts and crafts: from the relationship between East Asia and Western ceramics, via the handicrafts of the Romantic period, to the adventure that is arts and crafts.
