One of Each – Digital

A vacuum cleaner bag filled with dust, movie tickets, an empty pizza box – do these objects belong in a museum? Yes, because they tell stories of everyday life.

The artwork „One of Each“ by Frankfurt-based artist Karsten Bott contains 1.492 objects of everyday culture. He sorts them by subjects and themes and arranges them in 45 shelves, filling a whole wall in the museum’s permanent exhibition „Frankfurt Once?“, where these objects of present everyday life are juxtaposed against historical objects of Frankfurt’s history. Since October 2021, the artwork can be accessed via a media station in the exhibition space and online through an interactive web site. Users are invited to share their stories connected to the objects in form of texts, memories, pictures and videos. Join in!
