from art noveau to the present day

Selected holdings of the collection ranging from art nouveau to present-day items are shown on the upper floor. Here, particular emphasis is laid on works from the 1920s and 1930s. Purchased, for the most part, at the then legendary Grassi Fairs (www.grassimesse.de), these items present a unique historical testimony. A special touch will be added by the reconstruction of the fair booth of the Vereinigte Lausitzer Glaswerke (United Lusatian Glassworks) of Weißwasser, designed by Lilli Reich for the Grassi Fair in 1936.

On the ground floor, the exhibition continues with objects from the second half of the 20th century to the present-day. In contrast to the other parts of the permanent exhibition, the quantity of items here necessitates a more flexible presentation.
