The Early Years. Mart Stam, the Institute and the Collection for Industrial Design
January 21, 2021 until May 17, 2021
The exhibition puts a spotlight on the dawn of industrial design in the GDR and in particular on the work of the Dutch architect and Bauhaus member Mart Stam for a consistent modernisation of the product world and the institutional promotion of a new industrial culture.
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.
