Révélations Paris

Paris, Révelation

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.

Participating Designers: Andre von Martens, Claudia Biehne, Peter Vogel, Armin Kolb, Ute Beck, Alexa Lixfeld.
