Museum collections are collections. They are made up by a number of collected objects and sources that have some meaning to the museum and usually more than one. But how are the objects collected? What reasons lie behind certain objects being collected and where do the boundaries lie when collecting objects for a collection? The exhibition KEEPERS focuses on the Museum of Design and Applied Art’s collection. It will display the diversity that defines the collection while highlighting the fact that the museum’s collection is almost entirely composed of gifts. The title KEEPERS refers both to the objects themselves, the ones worth keeping, as well as the people who preserved them, kept them and eventually so generously gave them to the museum for safekeeping.
