The Permanent Exhibitions at the Glass Museums in Both Frauenau and Düsseldorf

Open access


The article explores different approaches to displaying glass artefacts in permanent exhibitions, housed in museums of glass. It analyzes two collections in the Glasmuseum Fraueau and the Glasmuseum Hentrich in Düsseldorf. The exhibitions facilitate dialogues between the historical, cultural, sociopolitical and ethnographic realms. Developing trends in fine art presentation show that there is also innovative potential in displaying glass artefacts. The author examines different museological and curatorial approaches, also looking into technologies and crafts, as they are integral to the exhibition of glass.
