For over 130 years, the MKG Messe Kunst und Handwerk (Arts and Crafts Fair) has offered contemporary craft artists and designers a space in which they can present their work to a broader public. The spectrum of work on show encompasses the fields of jewellery, textiles, furniture, ceramics, glass, wood, and tableware, produced by hand as unique pieces or in small editions.

This year a total of 66 finalists were selected to exhibit at the international fair, which has become a central forum for the meeting of cultural knowledge of craft techniques, the properties of various materials and sustainable processing methods.
