The exhibition provides unprecedented insight into Meissen's artistic development department - its members as well as their unique creations. The department „Künstlerische Entwicklung“, consisting of young artists, shook up a lot with its designs made of Meissen porcelain. It continued the tradition of the manufactory, while at the same time giving it a fresh appearance.

In particular, the unique art that emerged from the 1970s onward ushered in a new era at the manufactory. Until 2010, the department produced a large number of unique pieces that could not be more different from each other. They originate from the hands of Ludwig Zepner, Heinz Werner, Peter Strang, Rudi Stolle, Volkmar Bretschneider, Jörg Danielczyk, Sabine Wachs, Silvia Klöde, Gudrun Gaube, Olaf Fieber, Andreas Ehret and Andreas Herten and impress with their thematic and creative versatility.
