The new Kunstgewerbemuseum (Museum of Decorative Arts)

Change is in the air at the Kunstgewerbemuseum (Museum of Decorative Arts). Under its new director Tulga Beyerle the museum is clearly setting a benchmark.

The three exhibitions for the 2014 season offer an initial impression of what the Kunstgewerbemuseum will represent in future: passionately shifting between experiment and tradition, openness and internationality, as well as actively engaging with its varied collection. All this is based on the conviction that the topics tackled by the Kunstgewerbemuseum predestine it to be a hub for designers, craftspeople, researchers and, of course, the general public.

The museum comes together with all these people to explore its holdings from unusual angles, weaving new tales of design, techniques, backgrounds, life stories, aesthetics, social issues and more.
