Since centuries people are attracted to the strange and bizarre. Fascinated by the abnormality and perfection of the world, they collected everything possible in the so-called Wunderkammern more than 400 years ago. The chambers were walkable collections, encyclopaedias and rooms of the amazement at the same time.
If the objects weren’t curious enough by themselves, they became more interesting by myths and stories. Horns, relics and carved cherry stones. Jedwedes Ding das absonderlich “Anything strange” is a collection of 20 strange things which tracks down the spirit of the Wunderkammern, opens the doors to their stories and offers room for miracles.
