A restful material concept and the focus on dramatic lighting sets the scene on the precious fabrics.

The new permanent exhibition presents the world-famous collection from the Abegg Foundation. This includes textiles and other art objects from Europe, the Middle East and the area along Silk Road. The exhibition concept envisages that the room with floor to ceiling wall fragments is divided generously and the various themes can be elegantly presented in this space. The panels in the wall fragments allow one to focus on viewing the valuable textiles.
