German and international ceramics since 1946

The artistic studio ceramics are among the most important and internationally prominent collection areas of the museum. Numerous groups of stocks, often based on donations, were presented in two large and widely acclaimed exhibitions already in 2008/2009 and 2013/14. Many excellent new additions to these exhibitions followed in the stock. They are the basis of the continued exhibition GEFÄSS/ SKULPTUR 3 and another comprehensive accompanying publication.

In ceramics, the artistic developments since the mid-twentieth century have been manifested in a variety and impressively. Forming power and glazing beauty are encountered. Time and again, the path from the vessel to the sculpture is chosen or the relationship between these two possibilities is explored.
