Within the TAKING CARE experimental exhibition 'Extinctions!?' at the Weltmuseum Wien, we feature a showcase on endangered crafts. In September 2023 the story of the last traditionally working glassblowing manufactory was added in cooperation with Lena Wanner. Her company a mani brings the glass products to Austria. With this work she contributes to the preservation of glass art in Syria and supports the family that still keeps this art alive.
