Opening: The Color of Glass

Accounting for a total of 5000 objects in our collection, glass as a material constitutes an important thematic focus in Die Neue Sammlung since its foundation in 1925.

Conceived especially for the exhibition, a new room in the basement of Pinakothek der Moderne unites a selection of highlights: mass-produced hollow glass for everyday use, one-off, freely crafted objects, and also artistic and architectural designs. Their manufacture, their use, not to mention their status in society all attest to our relationship to glass.
