Appointment with a Collection
This exhibition is a rendezvous with artefacts that visitors* to the Nordico Stadtmuseum have never encountered before and about which they know nothing or very little.
Why are parts of a museum collection hardly ever on display? Are some objects not worth exhibiting? Exhibitions usually focus on objects that serve as highlights and are presented to convey knowledge. Is it unthinkable that the works in a collection might also convey sensual pleasure above all else?
“Blind Date” presents unusual visual experiences and reveals the City Museum as a place of creative research. The exhibition invites visitors* to approach the exhibits completely impartially and with aesthetic sensibility. A completely new view of the Nordico collection that will sharpen perception and spark the joy of discovery.
