Linked: the collection is networking
For this exhibition, Lieven Daenens, honorary director of the Design Museum Gent, made a personal selection of highlights which the museum acquired under his management. These favourite top pieces will not be simply exhibited, but will be given a central place in an inspiring new network of related objects. Each selected piece will be the centre of a little group. The objects in every group will be linked through either free or strict, serious or playful associations, based on formal, functional, material, conceptual, historical or other criteria. These new connections and associations will ensure that the visitor discovers hidden relationships and that common sources of inspiration light up.
