23 until 27 November 2021
MK&G messe

From 23 to 27 November 2022, the MK&G messe will present the latest trends in contemporary craft, including both up-and-coming and well-known positions, international tendencies and fresh perspectives from many disciplines such as ceramics, glass art and jewellery design. As an international forum, the MK&G messe offers a broad audience arts and crafts of high design and craftsmanship quality as well as an up-to-date public programme, which highlights creative and authentic production processes. In the newly established "Young Talents" category, selected artisans and designers are invited to present their work for the first time at the MK&G messe. A design focus is set by the fair’s architecture, specially conceived for the space. For the first time in its history, the MK&G messe will be accompanied by a large solo exhibition devoted to contemporary craft: for 2022, the renowned Essen-based ceramist Young-Jae Lee has been invited to present her work.

The opening of the fair and the presentation of the Justus Brinckmann Prize as well as the New Generation Award will take place on Tuesday, 22 November 2022 at 6 pm.

Further information for visitors and an application for exhibitors may be found at www.mkgmesse.de.

The MK&G messe is organised by the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg and the Justus Brinckmann Fördergesellschaft mbH.
