Kunsthandwerk im 21. Jahrhundert / Craft in the 21st Century
The German-English catalogue presents works created by the Danner-Preis 02 competitors. Since 1984 the Munich-based Benno and Therese Danner Art Foundation (Danner-Stiftung) announces a triennial competition that is one of the most prestigious award-granting events in the field of European decorative arts. Based on strict criteria, an international jury selected objects made in a variety of media: jewellery, ceramics, glass, metal, wood, textile, paper and stone. Fifty-two artists were selected from 230 competitors. The common denominator of the Danner-Preis 02 entries are the concepts “vivid” and “timeless”. The competitors are both experienced masters in their respective fields and young artists noteworthy for their innovative formal solutions.
The catalogue was issued to accompany the Danner-Preis 02 competition and the exhibition held in the Museum of Decorative Art in Prague, November 2002–February 2003.
