The Kunstkraftwerk Leipzig hosted the fair and exhibition “Echt Alt-Original Old” in the context of the 2015 Grassimesse and Designers’ Open. The project was implemented in cooperation with the Grassi Museum for Applied Arts. For this purpose, upcycled products and works of art from the fields of fashion, jewellery and textile design were sought out. More than 40 artists and designers from Europe took part.
The topic of upcycling is nothing new, and it is common knowledge that our natural resources are not inexhaustible. Nevertheless, a third of the products we buy are quickly disposed of.
Artists and designers have long since recognised the value of used and discarded materials. Unfortunately, their upcycled works remain niche products. The aim of the project was not to present do-it-yourself objects, but instead to showcase high-quality, unique and exceptionally sophisticated pieces.
