Accompanying the International ceramic fairs

International ceramics art in Oldenburg Castle

As part of the International Ceramics Fairs in Oldenburg, clay art will also be exhibited at the Landesmuseum für Kunst und Kulturgeschichte Oldenburg in Oldenburg Castle. Works and ceramic artists selected by a jury are presented in various exhibitions. Admission is free.

The Special Theme-Exhibition

Two days short – but impressive: the special exhibition at the Landesmuseum für Kunst und Kulturgeschichte Oldenburg on the International Ceramics Fairs. On a subject given by the Werkschule. The participants of the market can submit objects and thus prove their mastery of craftwork and artistic ceramics. Their interpretations and often idiosyncratic interpretations of the theme give the audience an impressive overview of the diversity of contemporary ceramics. The Ceramic Fairs Oldenburg are thus also a “school of seeing”.
