The long tradition of museum practice calls for museums as institutions to provide knowledge. In classic museology, knowledge is a commodity that a museum offers whereby the visitor believes in the correctness of that information. Within the framework of “Cabinet of the Unknown”, the museum's neighbourhood is invited to redefine the unknown and co-create a knowledge platform. The project dwells with the unknown through the processes of knowing and creating acquaintance and the exhibition is composed of the objects selected by its participants. Through this process, the focus moves away from the museum and expands towards a “new” audience in Oranienstasse enabling collective knowledge production.
While the exhibition is on display (July 28 through September 25, 2017), we cordially invite you to join our special guided tours through the Cabinet each Thursday at 6 pm, free of charge!
There will be three additional guided tours with curator Ece Pazarbasi on the following dates (Thursdays, 5 pm):
