Sehwaisen - Objects by Gabriele Rérat
October 31, 2015–January 11, 2016
The Werkbundarchiv – Museum der Dinge presents the special exhibition "Sehwaisen", devoted to works by the Swiss artist Gabriele Rérat (1960–2010). Her works, created out of found objects, are characterized by a critical, ironic attitude, and correspond in many ways with the Museum and the objects in its collections. Opening: October 30, 2015, 7:00 p.m.
The "Frankfurt Kitchen" is an important document of cultural history for the transfer of industrial, rationalized work processes to the sphere of the private household. This is a central characteristic of modern architecture and everyday culture in the 1920s.
