Porzellanikon Hohenberg a.d. Eger (Villa & Sammlung)
What actually happened at the Porcelain Manufactory Meissen during the second half of the 20th century? Quite a lot! The Porzellanikon in Hohenberg a.d. Eger sheds light on this exciting chapter of the manufactory's history. The largest collection of its kind with unique objects, which the museum received from collecting couple from Hamburg, invites visitors to marvel at and discover over 200 selected objects on almost 300 square meters.
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.
