The porcelain museum

My Safe Place

Special exhibition

The subject of the Augarten Porcelain Museum´s new special exhibition is solitude, withdrawal in a safe place. Whether alone or à deux, this state has acquired new significance in the year 2020. Historically speaking, it has not been rare for people to have to do without lager- scale social amuseument - or to consciously choose to do so. For many reasons: pandemics and other threats, the demadands of etiquette - or, more positively, the productivity of solitude for the creaticve mind. Our ancestors have always been familiar with the practice of self- isolation.
