Housing artefacts from the 20th and 21st century, the “Museum of Things” is hidden on the fourth floor of a former factory building in Kreuzberg. Documenting the journey of the Werkbund, one of the utopian cultural movements of the early 20th century, it was set up to promote modern design and self-expression in the production of industrial objects. Focusing on western obsessions with material culture and commodity, Museum der Dinge displays a wonderful combination of purist and functional objects to tasteless and sentimentally pleasing kitschy products.
If things are your thing, you can support the museum by Adopting a Thing. Choose an object from the collection at www.museumderdinge.de/pflegschaften to make a donation and further extend your fetishisation of objects.
