There are two exhibitions at the Keramik-Museum Berlin, you shouldn't miss: "Form - Funktion - Ideologie. Keramik in Deutschland 1933 bis 1945" shows an exceptional overview on ceramic production during the Nazi regime. Unfortunately, this one ends tomorrow. "Gertraud Möhwald und Umfeld der Burg Giebichenstein" has been extended to May 6th, focusing on Möhwald's early work within a selection of works by former students of hers and other makers out of the academic environment of Burg Giebichenstein Art School.
Conceptual artist Adam Buick has been chosen as one of five for this year's Jerwood Makers Open. The Jerwood Makers Open is a commission worth £7,500 given out by JVA at the Jerwood Space in South London every year to selected artists working within the applied arts sector . I am curious what he will make of it . More moon jars I expect . The final exhibition will be on show at the Jerwood in July and August and then tour through the UK.
