Already repaired or still to be saved? - On dealing with things in everyday life and museums

Schon repariert oder noch zu retten? – Vom Umgang mit Dingen im Alltag und MuseumBarocker Stuhl nach und vor der Restaurierung 1995

from 5.9.2020


The rules in the museum are different from those in everyday life. While objects of daily use are repaired, reused or maintained, the museum tries to change them as little as possible. The traces of time should be preserved, as they are important contemporary witnesses in the way society deals with its history.


The MUSEUM Jagdschloss Kranichstein searches for traces and makes the story behind the repairs and restorations of paintings, textiles, weapons and furniture visible.
