02 Mar 2017 - 05 Mar 2017

The University Museum and Art Gallery (UMAG) of the University of Hong Kong (HKU) and the Direktorenhaus Berlin will present Handmade in Germany, an exhibition displaying masterpieces of leading German manufacturers from March 2 to 5, 2017.

Handmade in Germany shows hand-made objects, such as furniture and jewellery, as well as manufactured silverware and porcelain. Together these artworks represent the value and future of premium quality production with a commitment to time and handiwork set against the backdrop of the current trends of mass production and globalisation.

This touring exhibition spans several continents and will continue for the next few years. Beginning in Berlin, the show first traveled to St. Petersburg (both centres of fine European decorative arts), and now will spend time across Asia, America and the Middle East before returning to Europe. The idea for the tour is inspired by the journeyman years, which refers to the period of study German craftsmen would go through after completing their apprenticeships. Similar to the Grand Tour of the European nobility, certain German craft traditions still follow this scheme in order to provide journeymen and aspiring master craftsmen with well-rounded and international training.

The UMAG exhibition will be complemented by a gourmet evening and guided tours. Details to be confirmed.

This exhibition is supported by the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany, German Industry and Commerce Ltd., Rhenus Logistics and the German National Tourism Board.
