June 19, 2022 – December 31, 2025

In WONDER, we celebrate collectors and collections. What do things mean to us? And why do we gather so many of them that they turn into a collection? The word wonder is associated with amazement, curiosity, miracles and reflection. These are the keywords in the five galleries that each offer a distinct take on the themes of collectors and collections.

We are invited into the secret storage space of the collections. We meet the private collector. Step into a massive Wunderkammer. Experience more than 2.000 Japanese sword guards. And end up in the ephemeral installation of snuff boxes. Welcome to WONDER.

WONDER was created in collaboration with Alexander Ottenstein, Bodil Damgaard Møller, Jakob Thorbek, Joe Mckenzie, Jenz Koudahl, Lau Futtrup Rasmussen, Margrethe Odgaard, Maria Mackinney and Mathias Mentze.

A storage space is where a museum keeps its objects. This is where they wait to be exhibited to tell their stories again. The objects are the result of thorough considerations of form, function, style, and technique. They reflect the culture and time in which they were created. They also reveal something about being human – our needs, dreams, and identities.

A thing becomes an object when it is included in the museum collection. As keepers of cultural heritage, a museum is obliged to take care of it indefinitely. In the storage space, objects are protected against wear, damage, light, and dust. They are preserved in ways that best slow down time. In acid-free boxes, behind the draped fabric and only touched by gloved hands.

The storage space might at first appear messy, but it is in fact organized according to the way a museum structures the world in material, geography, period, and artist. Each object is assigned a museum number so it can be retrieved among the thousands of others in the collection.
