Ever since her studies in Halle and Helsinki, Barbara Schmidt, one of Germany’s most successful porcelain designers, has been concerned with design that is suitable for everyday use, affordable and aesthetically appealing. ‘Poetry & Industry’ – a constant interweaving of creative craft design and serial production – describes the two poles between which her work can be placed. Barbara Schmidt works as a freelance artist at various colleges of art and as the head designer for KAHLA / Thuringia Porcelain Ltd.

The exhibition links the central thread of her biography with the objects characteristic of her approach and her work to date, along with a parallel narrative that reveals her design strategies and processes in each case, from the idea to the finished product. Artistic engagement in film and photos with selected objects and groups of her works and their way of production, provides a clearer perception of the artistic aspect of everyday objects.
