Prof. Lehmann co-curator of exhibition at the Museum der Dinge and Gewerbemuseum

14 October 2016

Prof. dr. Ann-Sophie Lehmann is co-curator of the exhibition Object Lessons. The Story of Material Education in 8 Chapters at the Museum der Dinge in Berlin and the Gewerbemuseum, Winterthur (Zwitserland).

This exhibition recounts the story of learning with, about, and through materials in the sciences, at school, in commerce, craft, and at home, in novels and movies, in the archive and on the Internet. From tree books, slag gravel and shell silk to hares’ scuts, cork stoppers and cloud leather and from historical DIY books to a digital material archive, the exhibition shows that material literacy has always been relevant, why it was forgotten, and what it may look like in the future.
