As a museum, the Werkbundarchiv – Museum der Dinge is a laboratory aimed at constantly renewing our perception of the history of things from the standpoint of contemporary commodity culture. Its goal is to explore the museum space and the potential for aesthetic education in museums and exhibitions. Exhibition projects continuously re-examine, interpret and develop the collection. These investigations primarily explore the legacy of the Werkbund, various curatorial approaches, and fundamental principles of design and day-to-day material culture.
