2016 Hetsch Award Winners Exhibit in St. Petersburg

 

Works by the winners of this year´s Hetsch medal are exhibited at the Danish Cultural Institute in St. Petersburg from September 21. – October 31. The Hetsch medal (Kunsthåndværkerprisen af 1879) is an annual Danish design award for craftspeople and designers in Denmark.

 

The exhibition in St. Petersburg has become an annual event at the Danish Cultural Institute in cooperation with Copenhagen School of Design and Technology (KEA).

 

Every year the Copenhagen School of Design and Technology (KEA) awards talented craftspeople and designers with the Hetsch medal.

 

To mark the occasion, DCI had invited the Danish designer and winner of this year’s Hetsch medal, Lotte Westphael, to give a lecture on her work and contemporary Danish ceramics at the Danish Cultural Institute in St. Petersburg, where a selection of her works also will be exhibited. The lecture took place on September 19 at 18.00.
