In May 2017, German manufactory work, presented by Direktorenhaus, was a guest of the Révélations — International Fine Crafts & Creation Biennale in Paris. In the Grand Palais over 400 craftsmen, designers, galleries, artists and foundations presented themselves to 45,000 trade visitors and art enthusiasts.
Direktorenhaus was invited by Révélations Biennale to present high-quality manufactory work as a representative of German craftsmanship in Paris. The so-called Banquet Exhibition, at which Direktorenhaus will present itself, is an international exhibition in the heart of the Révélations, focusing on the trends and aesthetics of contemporary craftsmanship.
It’s a vital communication platform of globally active institutions that visualises the creative potential of their respective studios and manufactories and shows the vitality of their unique national identity in the context of global creative economy. The Biennale is a network, a space for networking and encounters, and a manifesto for the identity of fine crafts and their essential role in our cultures and the world economy.
