Craft is Cactus. The Collection from 1945 to Today

6 Novembre 2021 - 27 March 2022
Museum Angewandte Kunst

Encompassing over 700 works from the international collection of the Museum Angewandte Kunst, this exhibition offers a new exploratory look at a range of items from a contemporary perspective. For the first time the museum is undertaking a reflective overview of works craftsmanship in its collection while examining the interface between art and design. What does craftsmanship mean today? This question is posed anew and reassessed in the context of the exhibition. The title underscores the ambiguous reputation of craft as an artistic discipline, while ironically playing on the ingenious survival traits of the “cactus” to express the future potential of the hand-made and its relation to art.
