The exhibition entitled “100 Years Deutscher Werkbund“ is designed to mark the hundredth anniversary of the Deutscher Werkbund (DWB), a German association of artists, architects, designers, and industrialists, born out of a desire for greater efficiency in the crafts industry, better design for industry, and a more modern approach to architecture. It celebrates DWB‘s existence and describes their efforts, successes and achievements as one of the most important and influential institutions of the 20th century – an institution that helped to shape cultural life in other European countries as well.
With posters, models, furniture, design, drawings and photos arranged chronologically in seven sections, the exhibit shows vividly the achievements of Deutscher Werkbund (DWB) throughtout the years as well as the question to the
future of the group. All the key ideas, concepts and activities are grouped thematically and are related to larger political and social contexts.
“100 Years Deutscher Werkbund” will open on April 04 with a program at Metropolitan Museum of Manila at 6pm.
The designer of the exhibition, Beate Rosalia Schmidt from Germany, will be present at the opening program.
