Since most of our planned events had to be canceled because of the pandemic development, we decided to introduce a new format. We meet the Friends of the GfZK in our exhibitions. This time Franciska Zólyom guides through the exhibition “Kunst_Handwerk”.
In recent years, contemporary artists have shown an increasing interest in materials, artisanal procedures, experimentation with material and techniques. The works make reference to both artistic traditions from craft and folklore and contemporary and technological discourses. Their approach to pre-modern / traditional / local knowledge, materials and procedures is not insular, but open to other cultures, modern and contemporary art, current discourse and digital developments.
