Museum Angewandte Kunst (Museum of Applied Arts)

As a lively place of discovery, since its reopening in April 2013 and under the leadership of director Prof. Matthias Wagner K, the Museum of Applied Arts has focused on the perception of social trends and developments, with an emphasis on design, fashion, and the performative. Against the backdrop of its important collections, it aims to make the hidden visible and create relationships between the events and stories surrounding things. The changing exhibitions tell of cultural values and changing living conditions. In addition, they always refer to the question of what applied art is and can be today and show the inherent tension between function and aesthetic added value.
