The GRASSIMESSE is organized by the GRASSI museum of Applied Art and takes place in the reconstructed Grassimuseum, an important building of the Art Decó period. Three exhibition rooms with a total of 1200 sqm provide space for 85 exhibitors. Leipzig is a city of a great fair tradition. In the 1920s the former director of the arts and crafts museum Leipzig, Richard Graul, founded a sales fair which later became known as the Grassimesse. Compared with the bigger Leipzig-fair, which offered mass-produced articles, the Grassimesse instisted on high quality. The former museum administration demanded a rigorous selection procedure of the artists. Therefore Grassimesse developed to a famous European stage for the craftspeople elite. Up until the last Grassimesse in 1956, more than 1500 craftsmen, designers, companies, art schools and artist’s associations from Germany, Austria and Scandinavia presented their wares to an international audience. Important participants for example artists from Bauhaus and Wiener Werkstätte were representative of the development of the applied arts between the 1920s and the beginning of the 1940s. Many of the exposed objects have become part of the museums collection as a kind of “archive of Modernity”.
With the theme "Full of Facets" , The Program is internationally oriented with speakers from Spain, Germany, the Netherlands, and Austia, thereby alumni students from academies throughout Europe will lecture about their works. According to tradition, everyone can present their work on the jewellery table.
This upcoming exhibition is being held jointly at the Italian Embassy and the Lorber Gallery in Tel Aviv. It is in association also with the Italian Institute of Culture and Shenkar College of Engineering and Design, Tel Aviv.
