29aprAll Day07augA State of Things - exhibition in National Museum(All Day)

Event Details

The things assembled in the exhibition come from different eras, cultures, and corners of the world. We show them in a layout corresponding with the rhythm of the day – from morning grooming, to the household routine, to play, rest, and bedtime. The shapes and functions of many of these things have largely been forgotten, as have their names: bed warmer, parure, liseuse, aigrette, chatelaine, banyan. Others have changed so drastically that their usage confounds us – young smartphone users would likely be unable to make a phone call on a 1932 telephone or operate a post-war Bajka projector.
We invite you to step into a world of things and practices that no longer exist.



April 29 (Friday) - August 7 (Sunday)
