Black Box | Objects from the Collection of Design Museum Holon

Design Museum Holon presents Black Box, exposing objects from the museum's 'black box' of treasures that have typically been reserved for preservation purposes and limited viewing. Each of the four different spaces in the museum will deal with a different aspect of the human to object relationship.

The Dr. Shulamit Katzman Gallery (The Lower Gallery) explores the essence of the museum collection - its value, composition and hierarchical relations. The Upper Gallery structures the complex relations between people and objects and will display two movements that run in parallel: one indicates the way in which people produce objects, and the other will deal with the way in which objects define human beings.

The museum's Design Laboratory features an exhibition by Yaakov Kaufman "A Research Design Collection," curated by Adi Hamer Yacobi, examines the concept of "collection" as a method of working that combines materials, technologies, ideas, perceptions and insights, through the collection of arches by Yaakov Kaufman.

The Margalith Gallery and the Peripheral Corridor ­features the exhibition "The Pit: Artifacts Raised up From the Belly of the Earth," curated by Avihai Mizrahi and Neil Nenner, which explores the life of discarded objects that have been abandoned by their human users.
