Since 2010, Direktorenhaus in Berlin offers a link between applied art, design and contemporary art.

Exhibition “Material Matters”, Benjamin Hubert, Direktorenhaus 2017

The exhibition space  has its own collection as well as changing exhibitions. The exhibitions focus on the noticeably increased importance of design and aesthetics in contemporary life.

Its programme revolves around current design phenomena and deliberately includes the border areas between architecture, art and craftsmanship. “Direktorenhaus” refers  to the tradition of stylistically influential artisan movements such as Arts and Crafts, Werkbund, De Stijl or Bauhaus.

At the same time, it wants to open up the view to future developments and is a platform for young design, craftsmanship and artistically influenced manufactory production. The director’s multifaceted programme allows different approaches to the understanding of design and applied art, which has changed in recent years.

Organic culture, bricolage style and digital media unite unbiasedly and confront design with questions of meaning and future. The Direktorenhaus pursues the goal of researching this phenomenon of contemporary design and communicating it to a broad public (even critically).
