Hella Jongerius & Louise Schouwenberg – Beyond the New

10 November 2017 – 16 September 2018

Hella Jongerius and design theorist Louise Schouwenberg have been invited to develop a site-specific installation in the Paternoster-Halle at the Pinakothek der Moderne.

A continuation of the manifesto Beyond the New. A Search for Ideals in Design, launched during the 2015 Salone del Mobile design fair in Milan, this exhibition focuses on the aims of collecting and exhibiting in Die Neue Sammlung – The Design Museum against the background of the institution’s genesis and historical development – in search of answers for what really is cultural innovation. Various installations invite the visitors to reflect on how different contexts affect the appreciation of functional things. The exhibition raises questions on the gap between how we experience design in daily life and how we read the meaning and value of those objects in the context of a museum display.
