This is where projects between art and craft, theory and practice, inspiration and innovation come together. The result is a sustainable Austrian competence center for ceramics that creates international relevance – from the Salzkammergut!
With its wide range of offerings, Gmunden will become a center for established and future ceramics experts as well as for ceramics enthusiasts and viewers from Austria and abroad. All of the planned initiatives are about awakening the interests of and involving the residents of the Salzkammergut as well as artists and guests from all over the world. A committed public commitment to the focus on ceramics in a historical and contemporary context.
The public program will not only attract an international audience to Gmunden with the presentation of the City of Gmunden Ceramics Awards in the categories of Lifetime Achievement, Innovation and Young Talent, as well as a culinary-ceramic closing evening, but will also place the city at the center of the most exciting developments in contemporary ceramic art.
