Finders Keepers30 AUGUST 2017
For the exhibition Finders Keepers, MacGuffin magazine has brought together more than 5000 household objects from over 40 collections in a grande parade of everyday products: from razors to jeans and from ropes to staircases. Inspired by Modest Manifesto for a Museum, in which the Turkish writer Orhan Pamuk pleads for a museum in which the story of ordinary people is central, Finders Keepers explores collectors’ stories and their relationship to a world of objects. Open from 8 September 2017 until 11 February 2018.
