HANDLE WITH CARE: UNPACKING A BULKY TABLE / Bauhaus Paperback 24 by Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau

「BAUHAUS PAPERBACK」シリーズ第24作。日用品が美術館のコレクションに加えられたらどうなるだろう。バウハウスのデザイナーであり移民のマルセル・ブロイヤー(Marcel Breuer)が1936年にロンドンのイソコン・ファニチャー・カンパニー(Isokon Furniture Company)のためにデザインしたテーブルは、今ではヴィクトリア&アルバート博物館のバウハウスコレクションの一部となっている。本書はこのテーブルをテーマに、バウハウス・デッサウ校大学院の研究・キュレーションプログラムで実施された事例研究をまとめた一冊。一般的に芸術とデザインの歴史においては対象がどの様式に分類されるかを重視するものだが、バウハウス研究室の生徒たちはこれに替わるアプローチとして、素材の物語、社会的慣習、ものが個人の所有物から美術館の収蔵品になるまでに通過する商品化と所有の様々なフェーズを精査した。同研究室はものが体現している社会的存在の様々な状態を批判的に分析している。

What happens to an everyday object when it becomes part of a museum collection? The table designed by the Bauhaus designer and émigré Marcel Breuer for the Isokon Furniture Company in London in 1936, which is today part of the Bauhaus collection at the Victoria and Albert Museum, is used as a case study on the postgraduate research and curatorial programme. While the history of art and design generally focuses on the stylistic classification of objects, the Bauhaus Lab participants suggest an alternative approach: they investigate the material stories, social practices, and different phases of commodification and ownership that the objects pass through on their way from personal possessions to items in a museum collection. The Lab critically analyses the various modes of social existence embodied in the objects.
