Meisterkreis Ausstellung in Tokio
July 21, 2013, Tokyo. Kick-off of a special world tour. The Meisterkreis presented German brands and culture and was patron of the exhibition “Kunst – Kunsthandwerk – Handwerkskunst”, which opened on the 11th of July in the German Embassy in Tokyo, in the presence of Dr. Volker Stanzel, German Ambassador in Tokyo, and some 160 high-ranking guests.
Artist Christian Rothmann travelled around the world for the project “Mother & Daughter”, photographing mothers and daughters in different cultures, of every age and in the most different situations –which he came across purely by chance. His work uses snapshots to show cultural diversity as well as what has long united us.
The Meisterkreis supports the artistic statement of the project, sensing, experiencing and respecting cultural differences. The basis of this is the confidence in the power of art to educate people aesthetically, to engage them, to connect, change and to enlighten through new experience.
Meisterkreis members share a common basis of excellent craftsmanship that continuously thrives and experiences inspiration from art and fascinates art connoisseurs, experts and admirers. Particularly in Japan, where the cultural consciousness is so close to that of Germany’s values. Art and craftsmanship are mutually dependent. A deep sense of the cultural expression, creativity and precision is developed from the resulting products and works.
