Exhibitions > Volksware


Volksware is the name of a brand. It exists since 1999. Volks-ware works in projects. Each idea is presented as a product, a "Volks' Ware" that means "people's product" or "product for people". The product is presented as a concept, an unic specimen, a limited edition or as a product without its own production. The form of the product depends on the idea and concept that the project is about.
Volksware is presented in galeries, shops, fairs, puplic spaces and other events that offer the best background and plattform for each Volksware project; like for example the "Passagen 2003" while the Furniture Fair in Cologne (GE), the Centraal Museum in Den Haag (NL), Montevideo, the Netherlands Media Art Institute in Amsterdam (NL), Artforum in Berlin (GE) or the Designmai in Berlin (GE).
Volksware explores the function of consumptions goods in the current time. The main focus is the meaning of consuming for the customer, the value creation of consumer products and its effect on the consumer.
