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 the major event in the field of contemporary art jewellery. FRAME together with the international exhibitions EXEMPLA, TALENTE and MEISTER DER MODERNE, is another highlight.
The Internationale Handwerksmesse (IHM), planned from 10 to 14 March 2021, has to be canceled due to the continued restrictions in place to contain the coronavirus pandemic. A tightening of measures and a lack of certainty in the planning are what has led to this decision.
The next IHM will take place from 9 to 13 March 2022, at the Fairground in Munich.
Considered to be the annual event for goldsmiths and jewellery designers worldwide, the SCHMUCK special exhibition is taking place at Internationale Handwerksmesse and «Handwerk & Design». In the course of its more than 60-year history, it has acquired a unique status and is the meeting place for jewellery enthusiasts, collectors, gallery owners and museum curators from around the world.
SCHMUCK is organised as a competition. Jewellery artists from all over the world hand in their works to be part of the exhibition.
The highlight of SCHMUCK will be the awarding of the Herbert-Hofmann Prize up to three artists, which is eagerly anticipated by a multitude of international guests every year.
Another reason for the jewellery scene to make the move from New Zealand through North America and all the way to Munich are the prestigious international galleries, which, under the title FRAME, set the stage for SCHMUCK like a splendid decoration and can only be experienced together at Internationale Handwerksmesse and «Handwerk & Design».
EXEMPLA, the largest of the special shows at the International Crafts and Trades Fair, will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2021. This is reason enough to take a look back at the show's most successful themes, interesting contributions, and outstanding personalities who over the past years have helped shape and define this special show and contributed to its legendary reputation.
The selection made for the 2021 exhibition will take account of especially successful craftspeople and designers who prove that artisanal achievements are part and parcel of our everyday culture and that the crafts deserve to be considered an essential element of society. The chosen workshops and designers are representatives of their fields, distinguished by outstanding artisanal skills in the crafts and trades who self-confidently devote themselves to creating results of the highest quality in their chosen fields.
The special exhibition TALENTE has been part of Internationale Handwerksmesse for more than 30 years. It consists of a continually surprising selection of young up-and-coming designers from a variety of fields. The exhibition represents an imaginative and creative cross-section of current design-approaches among young artisans and artists.
The tendencies and strengths of certain schools and training institutions as well as the emphases prevailing in different countries are reflected in the show in equal parts. Furthermore, TALENTE provides a platform for participants to introduce themselves to an expert public and become part of an international network.
TALENTE will show innovative, imaginative, extraordinary, and very different works. Especially in the fields of glass, ceramics, and jewellery, as well as an unusually large number of interesting textiles and fashion designs. The best eight contributions will be awarded the TALENTE prizes.
MEISTER DER MODERNE
MEISTER DER MODERNE exhibits a selection of outstanding works in the arts and crafts and in design and is a mirror of contemporary aesthetics.
Mastery can have many starting points; it can be the impressive use of materials, subtle functionality, technical precision, the elegance of colour and form, humour and enigma. With its selection of masterpieces, the exhibition MEISTER DER MODERNE aims at documenting the diversity of international arts and crafts.
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, TALENTE and MEISTER DER MODERNE.
The printed city map will be available at the trade fair. The online version will be available from mid-February 2022 on the website www.ihm-handwerk-design.com
