Intro
In 2017 “Talente” will present works from 105 young artist-craftsmen from 32 countries in 14 different metiers. For example there will be works from Taiwan, Ireland, Slovakia and Argentina. “Talente“ will show innovative, imaginative, exceptionally and very diverse works especially in the fields of glass, ceramics and jewellery as well as an unusually large number of interesting textiles and for the first time works from the section mixed media.
This makes it evident that there is a huge interest in novel combinations of materials and in the experiment with different resources. Some of the works presented are less finished designs but more ongoing projects concerned with the exploration of materials. The exhibits present results of different combinations, innovative production methods and working processes. They are to be regarded as stages in the research for alternative sustainable and ecologically friendly basic materials. This aim for a considerate and responsible handling of resources and production methods characterises many of the exhibited works. They exemplify that sustainability and eco friendliness go very well together with modern design.
 
Many works prove the close range of craftsmanship and design, refer to the increasing interest of young designers in traditional techniques of the crafts and in integrating these methods in their designs.
 
In most cases the material is the point of departure for the designers. They experiment with the range of possibilities in expression and production, show great freedom and joy in the handling of materials and in the investigation of the relationship between their own ideas and the intrinsic and appropriate conditions concerning the materials involved. This emphasis allows an interesting connection to this year’s “Exempla” which is devoted to the subject “Material Values in the Crafts”. The young artists-craftsmen employ the given material qualities to establish specific effects. This is why they often combine different materials to use the whole range of material possibilities.
 
They take up as well contemporary issues like immigration and the notion of home/homeland. The examination of the own person, the individual and his/her relationship to the past or his/her role in the present, the involved responsibilities - especially concerning the preservation of nature - are also explored.
 
“Talente” will combine as in the years before works with very different approaches, aims and intentions. Beside works of a rather artistic goal “Talente” will also show works which have a decisive and concrete functional aim. Works which try out new directions and unusual positions will be presented as well as such works which consciously join the tradition of their craft and convince by the high quality of workmanship. Other works in turn are more related to industrial design and to the serial production. They form prototypes or aim at the combination of design and craft this being a most up-to-date subject with the media too. These report regularly on the interest of design in the handicrafts. Young designers und consumers are aiming at controlling the process and are looking to be involved in it, to create or to own works which specifically correspond to their own requirements and ideas. These works should be individualised and should follow the personal feelings. They should also precisely inform about the stages of their production. The aim is to create a very special piece in the production of which the owner is closely involved. This is only to be achieved via craftsmanship rendering this form of production most attractive for designers.
 
Especially the field of ceramics is characterized by diversity and seems to enjoy a sort of renaissance. There are poetic works beside monumental sculptural pieces or functional items. A similar combination is to be found with metal works: There are not only knifes and locks but also delicate vessels, material experiments and sculptural works. One of the basic concerns in this area is the exploration of materials.
 
 
Regarding textiles there is an exceptional large number of exhibits from Israel, Belgium and the Netherlands. “Talente” will show fabric samples, new combinations of materials or ways of production, fashion designs with different aims and approaches as well as more sculptural conceptions.
 
In the field of furniture the whole range of possibilities will be presented: There will be functional furniture, which is determined by simple forms, practical construction and great quality of craftsmanship as well as stools which are produced with the 3D-printer, furniture using natural materials or fantastic inventive designs.
 
As every year a huge number of applications reached us from the field of jewellery so that it was exceptionally difficult for the jury to make here a selection. The aim of the selection is not only to present contemporary trends but also to show works in relation to each other and to explore more deeply common interests of the makers. One subject concerns the examinations of contemporary ideals of beauty - in Asia and in the West as well - , and the fear of changes due to aging processes. A second subject explores the ways of dealing with stones and a third subject deals with the use of different, sometimes cheap everyday objects like concrete, plastic, steel, rubber balloons, foam, digitally worked photos and acryl as well as aluminium cans. In many works the motif of alienation and the transformation of materials plays an important part.
 
This year the field of technique is especially broad: Beside magnet lamps and a novel designs for a sink, there will be shown among others crystals growing on textiles, textiles reacting to humidity and a changeable tent. 
 
This year again the combination of different unusual ideas, novel conceptual and aesthetic approaches are part of the main attractions of “Talente”. The exhibits present the pursuit of innovation and unusual ways as well as the wish to connect these new attitudes with traditional craftsman skills to keep this alive. The exhibits document the search for new forms, for an own contemporary language and the striving for functionality, the enjoyment of experiment.
