Kunstbibliothek shows the exhibition In:complete. Destroyed – Dismembered – Completed
Fragments, incomplete or unfinished objects are an integral part of every museum collection. In an exhibition at the Kulturforum, volunteers from the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin (National Museums in Berlin), the Musikinstrumenten-Museum (Museum of Musical Instruments) and the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin (Berlin State Library) shed light on the multifaceted stories of these objects and the appeal of the incomplete. The exhibition brings together rarely shown exhibits of different genres and cultures from prehistory to the present from 22 collections of the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation.
