Arts and crafts is cactus : the collection since 1945

Sabine Runde (Editor, Author), Matthias Wagner K (Editor, Author), Nora von Achenbach (Author), MAK Frankfurt (Host institution)
"The terms 'arts and crafts' poses as many questions as there are preconceived opinions about it. It is associated with individuality, uniqueness, a multi-perspectival nature, decorative potential, artistic quality and a high experiential value. This publication examines the developments in arts and crafts from the second half of the twentieth century, as exemplified by the collection of the Museum Angewandte Kunst. Scale reproductions of plates, furniture, cutlery, jewellery and vases highlight their surprising variegation in form. In their essays, the nine authors take diverse approaches to the broad terrain of arts and crafts: from the relationship between East Asia and Western ceramics, via the handicrafts of the Romantic period to the adventure that is arts and crafts"--Back cover
