Internationale Handwerksmesse Munich
Handwerk & Design
- Andrea Eisenschink
From 28th February to 3rd March 2024 the «Handwerk & Design» trade fair offers the international craft industry its own forum within the framework of the Internationale Handwerksmesse (IHM). From handmade spectacle frames to porcelain lampshades, from award-winning watches to the special show of young artistic talent.
For «Handwerk & Design» 2023 about 200 participants presented the highest quality creative crafts, produced as unique items or in small series in an area of 11,000 square meters. Here, masterful technical execution meets a pronounced awareness of good design. Individually, and sustainably produced in local small businesses, the artisanal products incorporate the latest ideas and innovations. Here you can discover things that are not found in any catalogue.
The «Handwerk & Design» exhibition is part of Internationale Handwerksmesse and showcases the high art of skilled craft, top-class handicrafts, and artistic design. The SCHMUCK special exhibition is a major event in the field of contemporary art jewellery. FRAME together with the international exhibitions EXEMPLA and TALENTE is another highlight.
World-class special shows:
The EXEMPLA, SCHMUCK, and TALENTE – Meister der Zukunft special shows, organized by the Handwerkskammer für München und Oberbayern chamber of crafts, bring together top international works from the fields of creative crafts and applied arts. Experts and specialists from all over the world come here to see the most innovative work in the sector.
Craftsmanship cannot be learned by studying books. This is why EXEMPLA traditionally offers not only top-quality handicraft products. In “live workshops” craftsmen and women can demonstrate their skills on site. The theme in 2023 was boatbuilding. It is an area where craftsmanship can unfold its full glory. "Boat building is the pinnacle of craftsmanship" says Wolfgang Lösche, Head of the Department for Trade Fairs and Exhibitions at the Chamber of Crafts for Munich and Upper Bavaria, which organiszes the special show.
Young designers up to the age of 35 can be discovered at the TALENTE – Meister der Zukunft special show. The most promising artists from 24 countries are selected from hundreds of applications, spanning all fields from glass to textiles, right through to paper and wood, to showcase their fresh ideas, materials discoveries and re-examinations of traditional thinking. Together, they impressively demonstrate the wide range of possibilities that craft and design have to offer.
The SCHMUCK special show still remains the most important show for contemporary artistic jewellery, more than 60 years after it was founded. Last year, it was curated by the British artist Caroline Broadhead. The traditional small solo exhibition under the auspices of SCHMUCK was dedicated to Annamaria Zanella in 2023. In the tradition of Arte Povera, Annamaria Zanella worked mainly with "simple" materials such as plastic, broken glass, shells, the eyelets of old tin cans, sponges or nails
More international jewellery art can be seen at the stands of FRAME: a dozen of the most important jewellery galleries in the world will come together here, from focal points of the scene such as Galerie Marzee from Amsterdam, Platina from Stockholm or Rosemarie Jäger from Hochheim.
Jewellery events during the special exhibitions in Munich
For SCHMUCK, the trade fair organiser GHM Gesellschaft für Handwerksmessen mbH and the Chamber of Crafts and Trades for Munich and Upper Bavaria will design a special map of the city in which all events in galleries, studios, and museums that take place during the special exhibition in Munich will be listed. Alongside information on SCHMUCK and on «Handwerk & Design» within the framework of the Internationale Handwerksmesse, it lists other venues and events – and, of course, more details on other renowned special exhibitions at the IHM: EXEMPLA, and TALENTE.
The printed city map will be available at the trade fair. The online version will be available from mid-February 2024 on the website www.ihm-handwerk-design.com
