Permanent Collection / Open Storage

<p>The museum shows a significant part of its collection of design and everyday culture of the 20th century in an „Open Storage“ presentation. On the one hand the objects are arranged in a display of exemplary objects and supply information about the polarizing program of the Deutscher Werkbund and on the other hand give basic information about function, using-history in the 20th century and contemporary product culture. The objects face a very controversial constellation: objects designed by famous artists are confronted with anonymous design, functional and puristic objects are placed besides „bad taste“ or „Kitsch“ while substantially „honest“ things encounter surrogates, branded articles face no-name products. This museum laboratory aims at directing the visitor’s attention - starting from today’s product culture - to visualize and re-experience 20th century’s history of things.</p>
