Porzellanikon: Porcelain Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow
Wilhelm Siemen (WS), the former Director of the German Porzellanikon – Staatliches Museum für Porzellan Hohenberg a. d. Eger/Selb, came to Upper Franconia in 1984.
He had been tasked to elaborate and implement a concept for the Museum of the German Porcelain Industry, as the mother house of the Porzellanikon was called at that time. He retired on 1 November 2019. But before that, he kindly agreed to tell us about the development of the museums, their tasks today and his ideas for follow-on work and projects.
