Over the course of the twentieth century, “Made in Germany” became synonymous with outstanding design and excellent quality. The design ideas and manufacturing methods of twentieth century German design are foundational to modern design and manufacturing as we understand it. This is the first time that the China Academy of Art and He Xiangning Art Museum have collaborated on a thematic show since the Bauhaus and modern European design collections came to Hangzhou in 2010. The show provides a systematic overview of twentieth-century German design and manufacturing and reinterprets this period of history from a contemporary Chinese perspective. The exhibition is divided into four sections: “Crafts and Manufacturing,” “Ideals and Experiments,” “Design and Politics,” and “Systemization and Internationalization”. Historical documents on German design and manufacturing highlight the relationships between modern design, manufacturing, art, education, politics, and globalization in the twentieth century, and as such, there are many things the Chinese design world can learn from the German experience.
