Every Day at the Museum
Aufsichten präsentieren ihre Lieblingswerke

17.06.2022 to 02.10.2022

The exhibition intervention Jeden Tag im Museum (Every Day at the Museum) presents the favourite works of the security staff working at the Kulturforum, in Dahlem, in Köpenick and on the Museumsinsel Berlin.

Hardly anyone spends as much time with the objects at the museums as the security staff. Day in and day out, they protect the works, welcome visitors and develop quite individual relationships with the collections. Coming from the most diverse backgrounds and with a wide range of interests and experiences, they each have their own emotional, everyday view of the works. These views open multiple perspectives, which we would like to share with you in this presentation.
