Workspace Series – 5 Questions on the Collections

Where do our collections come from? What stories are attached to them? What expertise is contained in the objects?  What human encounters do they bear witness to? And what is the significance of the collections today? With the exhibition series "Five Questions on the Collections", we are currently thinking of the museum as an open workspace – a space for collaborative exploration and research. In doing this we are making our museum work visible and inviting people to look at the collections and objects from ever new perspectives.

The exhibition "Honeymoon?" kicked off the series; in October 2022, the second exhibition "Business Idea?" opened. In early March 2023, the third work space series exhibition "Looted Goods?" followed. From July 2023, we have presented the fourth exhibition "Mask Dances?". Since November 2023, the last work space series exhibition "Workpieces?" has completed the series.
