Talk serie "Out of the Display Cases":
Stereotyped furniture – modular furniture – fitted cupboards
> Bauhaus Museum Dessau
Marcel Breuer designed the ti 66 glass fronted cupboard in 1926. It consists of individual parts that can be combined as required and already prefigures the dissolution of big solid cupboard volumes. Later, furniture systems by Franz Ehrlich, Hans Gugelot and Rudolf Horn advanced the idea in favour of variable interiors. So how much Bauhaus is there in fitted cupboards?
Museum exhibits require a certain distance, which is why they are behind glass. Many of the items in the exhibition are now part of everyday life. What makes these objects fit to be museum exhibits? And how do they relate to our lives today? The Out of the Display Cases series gets visitors closer up. It fosters talks between visitors and objects, with a bearing on everyday experiences today.
