About the Exhibition

Glass in its technical diversity and brilliant colorfulness is shown by Die Neue Sammlung in a selection of its highlights.

Series-produced hollow glass for everyday use, unique, free objects made of glass as well as architectural designs – not only the fascination of colorless and colored glass, but also technical artistry, versatile design vocabulary and different functional requirements are topics of the show. The history of the collection is also reflected: it has been collected internationally and contemporary.

In a spatial staging, design, craftsmanship and free art are intertwined and complemented by contemporary positions from the fields of architecture and photography.

In view of the 100th anniversary, Die Neue Sammlung is setting new thematic priorities in its rooms.
