Design of the Third Reich

08 Sep - 19 Jan 2020 / Design Museum Den Bosch, De Mortel 4, HV ‘s-Hertogenbosch, NL

Design is often presented as contributing to a better world. The history of design therefore consists of re-occurring subject matter representing moral correctness. The Design of the Third Reich exhibition shows design as an instrument in the hands of the ultimate forces of darkness. The Volkswagen Beetle, the 1936 Olympic Games, the swastika and Leni Riefenstahl’s films. The main loan items come from major German museums in Berlin and Munich.
