Let´s spend a lazy afternoon at the Neues Museum - the Design section has completely been updated recently.
Also the special exhibition about Utopian Art:
How do we want to live today and what artistic means can help us find productive approaches to do so? The interdisciplinary exhibition on the utopian engages contemporary perspectives from art, architecture, and design in a dialog with references from the Protected content and Protected content . It takes up contemporary calls for new utopias for the 21st century and aims at initiating social discussions and visions of the future not by means of dystopian prophecies, but by promoting new modes of thinking via productive discourse. If one perceives utopia as a method of thinking, as an intellectual free space in which concepts for the future are tested while also critically reflecting the status quo, independent of what is currently realizable, it gains immediate significance for the present. As creative engines, art, archi­tec­ture, and design can make a meaningful contribution to promoting such alter­native models of thought and reassessing utopian qualities.
What if ...? presents over thirty artists and designers who investigate the potential of the utopian. In five chapters, the exhibition features photographs, films and videos, drawings, architectural models and objects, extensive or interactive installations. Central thematic complexes related to the utopian, such as state and city, bring together historical and current sources of inspiration
