A programme full of contrasts awaits visitors to the Bavarian Association for Arts and Crafts during the summer weeks: under the title 'Contrasts', a theme that accompanies and inspires everyday life as much as the fields of art and craft are addressed. The colourful invitation outlines which contrast attracts or repels, what can unite and what can separate.

Properties such as soft or hard, rough or smooth, large or small are found on the tableau, as are the opposing concepts of function and form, the every day and the special, the orderly and the untidy. In most cases, the mere mention of these contrasts conjures up images in the mind. Because, as with anything, the evaluation of these words is a matter of opinion. When does light become dark? When does the every day become something special? Can the simple not also be sophisticated?

Meet the Artists: Friday, 21st July 2023, 16.00 p.m to 18.00 p.m.
