Design museums of the world
Neues Museum (Nuremberg, Germany)
Birkhäuser, 2004 - Architecture - 263 pages
To celebrate the first design exhibition of Neues Museum, Staatliches Museum fur Kunst und Design in Nuremberg, Die Neue Sammlung Munchen, one of the world's oldest design museums and responsible for the design section in Nuremberg, invited 29 museums from all over the world, who likewise focus on design in a museum context, to contribute to its very first design exhibition in Nuremberg. The result is a highly diverse picture of this type of museum, based on an insightful text and a selected object from each country. The exhibition and the catalogue document a wide variety of different approaches and the everchanging way design museums see themselves. Among the museums featured are: Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam), The National Museum of Modern Art (Kyoto), The Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York) and Vitra Design Museum (Weil am Rhein).
