Not big but great! Brief and accurately to the point. Uncommon combinations of objects, e.g. porcelaine, a Gutenberg bible, and Bauhaus objects under the Audi claim ‘Vorsprung durch Technik” (translated politely as ‘progress through technology’) – it’s really worth checking out. Only the shop at the end pays a bit too much tribute to allegedly German icons. But of course it might be that I just don’t really understand British humour.
A really stunning show!

Natürlich kenne ich das Brücke-Museum, aber diese Auswahl besticht. Die Holzschnitte, köstlich, Karikaturen und Postkarten, wie Vorläufer von Comics. Umfassende Fehmarn-Werksammlung, interessant.
