Order is a fundamental aspect of every museum: the ordering of things, the ordering of knowledge about humanity and the world. Our next exhibition takes a closer look at precisely these systems. Taking a closer look at these ordering devices can help us detect unconscious assumptions and blind spots, especially in museum work.
Permanent Collection - Open Storage
Located in a former workshop-building, the museum is organised as "open storage" in which visitors can investigate the museal setup of the collection on about 6,000 square meters.
The museum shows a large and rarely exhibited collection of design and everyday culture of the 20th and 21st century.
Upcoming Special Exhibition
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.
