Estonia - Ceramics as a fundamental material in human life

The international exhibition “The European Cultural Lifestyle in Ceramics - from Baroque until Today” connects the MIC International Museum of Ceramics in Faenza with other eight European museums. In Tallin, until the 26th of March

The exhibition is part of the wide European project “Ceramic and its dimension”, dedicated to the exploration of ceramics from the point of view of the relations among the different potteries, the social development and the geographical contexts.
The aim of this project is to document the use of ceramics in different European geographical, historical and cultural contexts, starting from the Baroque period to the present day, with reference to future challenges.

Beside the MIC in Faenza, the Museums involved and set of the exhibition are: the Museum of Applied Art of Belgrade, the Porzellanikon National Museum of Selb (Germany), the National Museum of Ceramics of Valencia (Spain), the Pottery Museum and Art Gallery of Stoke-on-Trent (UK), the Estonian Museum of Ceramics and Porcelain in Tallin, (Estonia).
Other Museums lending items: the Applied Arts Museum in Riga, the Decorative Arts Museum in Prague and the National Museum in Ljubljana.

Each of them has assessed and analyzed the role of ceramics in the life of their own country over the centuries, from the 1600s to the present day. Each country has unique characteristics, tastes and artistic tendencies, which have been continuously formed under the influence of innovation and demands of each period.

Each century is represented by representative objects which illustrate an history, not only devoted to ceramics, but also rich of social-anthropological aspects. Observing the evolution of the artefacts, their shapes, decorations, functional aspects allows to understand the progress and the increasing of a nation.

The exhibition explores the tradition of ceramics with a desire to encourage the knowledge of our present situation, starting from ceramic manufacturing for everyday use to great artistic and biotechnological possibilities of contemporary ceramics.
