Art in a department store
All around Valentine’s Day, love symbolically moved in in the Galeria Karstadt department store in Augsburg. The Museum of Love lent part of its collection of love objects to the department store under the title “Heart things and genuinely experienced love stories” and offered visitors touching exhibits ranging from pink love letters to the characteristic dried fennel. The exhibition was crowned by a programme by the founder Luise Loué on 8 and 14 February in the confectionery department to match the theme. In addition to personal guided tours around the objects and their love stories and entertaining stand-up comedy with the program “Don’t forget the love! Love objects and their stories”. The successful exhibition was rounded off by a performance with musical accompaniment by Katrin Grassmann in the Café SAMOCCA Augsburg.
Special exhibition “Don’t forget the #love!” at the LWL-Freilichtmuseum Detmold
In 2019 the Museum of Love moved from Bavaria to Detmold. Or rather, it rolled. Because the heart of the special exhibition “Don’t forget the #love!” was the Tiny House. In addition to concerts on 12m², workshops on the theme of minimalism and a clothes exchange party, interested guests were able to submit the love objects they had brought with them and talk about their personal experiences with the most beautiful feeling in the world in open discussion groups. Does digitalization change love? – In the exhibition building, visitors were presented objects and stories by an app – just like in real life! In the cinema, the SMS of a 1.5-year relationship was shown as a play, historical love stories were distributed at many stations on the 90 hectare site. An interactive exhibition with a wonderful response!
Museum of love objects in Munich
The Museum of Love made its debut at that time still under its original name Museum der Liebesobjekte (Museum of Love Objects) at the Munich-Haidhausen Literature Office, where the collection of love objects was first exhibited in 2016. The principle of the artist and the museum, “Don’t forget love”, adorned the wall of the house, readable to the world. In weekly readings, Luise Loué as curator introduces the realm of love artefacts, creates space for dusty memories and great emotions, and brings in personal experiences. A special highlight was the participation of the exhibition in the Long Night of Munich’s Museums (Langen Nacht der Münchner Museen).
