Things we collect. Designers, Frankfurt am Main

25 Novembre 2023 - 7 April 2024
Museum Angewandte Kunst

With the exhibition Things we collect, the museum asks designers from the greater Frankfurt area what they collect and why.

The starting point is the Museum Angewandte Kunst’s own collections, which in the history of the museum have in part entered the museum as donations or long-term loans from private collections for permanent institutional preservation, research and presentation. The objects in a collection such as the Museum Angewandte Kunst are characterized by a combination of aesthetics, function and use, quality of craftsmanship, design process, innovation and experimentation, historical context and cultural significance.

For the exhibition, designers were asked about their private collections, due to the fact that the museum is particularly dedicated to the work of product and graphic designers and designers in the broader sense.
