Museum of World Cultures

Being Object. Being Art

Frankfurt am Main 30.10.2009 – 31.10.2010
© Heike Schäfer-Kolberg, Diplom Designerin
For the first time, 130 ethnographica – everyday objects or ritual items from indigenous societies – taken from the abundance of a collection inventory comprising 67.000 items, are publicly presented from the point of view of 'the masterpiece' in an exquisite art project at the museum of World cultures in Frankfurt.
The beholder is meant to discover in the 13 rooms the extraordinary, the elaborate, the different, the perfect, the harmonic or even the disturbing in the objects concerned.
The design and architecture of the rooms focus the aesthetic of the exhibit objects and underline the brilliant artwork, without distracting the exceptional objects.
The encounter with the objects which are incorporating the artistic, social and political concepts of indigenous societies promises to be a unique and fascinating experience of art.
