11 May 2007-7 Oct 2008. The Museum fűr Kunst und Gewerbe of Hamburg displays Folding into Form, an exhibition which brings back to life the ancient Origami, the Japanese art of folding paper into artistic forms which dates back 2000 years ago. On show are some 140 works by 44 contemporary artists from 14 countries. This event reflects the influence of the art of folding paper on science and design. Origami has blossomed into an impressive movement in the last decades. Among the artists on show are eminent figures such as the Americans Robert Lang and Michael La Fosse, the Japanese Koshiro Hatori and the Israeli Miri Golan and Paul Jackson.

A programme of lectures and workshops for children and adults gives the visitors the opportunity to learn how to fold paper themselves.
