PREVIEW. Mixed Zone. Dialogues between Art and Design
Faced with cultural and social developments, museums constantly reinvent themselves. In recent years, art and design have been presented at Neues Museum Nürnberg in large-scale interdisciplinary exhibitions on specific themes. Now it is time to realize the experiment of directly juxtaposing and intermingling the collection’s two main focusses in the permanent exhibition.
In a joint exhibition by Die Neue Sammlung – The Design Museum and Neues Museum Nürnberg the museum’s ground floor presents itself in a new guise for the anniversary year. Design objects and artworks appear in diverse constellations, ranging from the basics (form, material) to similarities and approximations (reference, quotation) to self-critical action (resources, recycling), placing art and design in an eye-opening interplay intended to be associative and inspiring.
For the exhibition architecture, we found an ideal partner in Tilo Schulz, whose own work also oscillates between art and design.
