From 12 to 15 December 2019, our French partner organisation, Maitre d’Art, will celebrate its 25th anniversary at Place Saint-Germain-des-Prés in Paris. The anniversary will be celebrated with a Franco-German exhibition, in which 20 French members of Maitre d’Art and 20 German members of the German Craft Council will exhibit. The exhibition will take place in the Hôtel de l’Industrie, which has stood for the promotion of innovation and craftsmanship in the French capital for 200 years.
Three areas are presented thematically: Haute couture and accessories as well as craft objects/furniture and musical instruments. The anniversary will be accompanied by a Franco-German “Ronde table”, which aims to promote cooperation between Germany and France in the field of arts and crafts.
The German-French exchange is accompanied by the French Ministry of Culture.
The German political delegation is currently being assembled. The event will be opened by the Honorary President of Maitre d’Art, Marcelle Guillet-Lubrano, President Yves Benoit and Katja Kleiss (Meisterrat).
