„KUNST AUF LAGER“: From blind spot to spotlight

14 partners, 230 projects and 20 million Euros have brought thousands of exciting objects that were too damaged or too forgotten to be shown from depots into exhibition halls, research projects, radio series and on political agendas.
The focus of this funding initiative is on the collection as a museum’s unique and outstanding value. We deal with confusing stocks, mouldy boxes and spalling color. And we have learned that old stuff from cellars can raise as much attention as spectacular purchases and borrowed exhibitions. So the good news about this difficult issue of museums is: There are still treasures to be digged out.
