Design Workshop: Vorgefundene Muster erfinden

The history of the Deutsche Werkstätten in Dresden and architects like Richard Riemerschmid or Bruno Paul are well known. But who knows that in the period from 1898 to 1938 over fifty female designers designed for this company? Our exhibition “Gegen die Unsichtbarkeit. Designerinnen der Deutschen Werkstätten Hellerau 1898 bis 1938” offers these female designers, who have been forgotten over the years despite their lively design work, exhibitions, successful participation in competitions and teaching activities, the public they deserve for the first time.
