Museum of Things, or Museum der Dinge as we say in Berlin. Just around the corner from Lower East Lab you find this little pearl; a museum with things! Beautiful things, storytelling things, strange things, design things….
Besides shifting exhibitions Museum der Dinge is the archive of the Deutsche Werkbund. The organization was founded in 1907, and became one of the leading organizations for German artists, designers, and manufacturers.
The Lower East team visited the museum the other day – and enjoyed both the archive and the current exhibition “Masse und Klasse: Graphic Design in the GDR”.
We took of course a lot of photos there, and played around with some of them in our digital darkroom…
If you have the chance, go visit the museum – find more info here.
Museum der Dinge, Berlin
Lower East paid visit to the corny museum, Museum der Dinge (Museum of Things) in Berlin, the other day.
Text from their webpage: “Since summer 2007 the museum shows a significant part of its large and rarely exhibited 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.”
On Orainenstrasse, open Friday to Monday. Website – check it out.
