Christmas Shopping at the MuseumsShop
smell of warm beeswax trails through the newspaper kiosk in Berlin’s
galleries’ quarter “Mitte-Nord”. The smell of Christmas! On the hob are
pots with melted wax from California, tinted in red pigment, natural
yellow or pure white into which the student of Baselitz H.N. Semjon
carefully dips Christmas tree decoration: balls, angels and stars.
Cooled down in the studio, the Christmas Ornaments appear as if
touched by frost, or covered with reddish shining chocolate. Each piece
is unique. Fine details, lines or few brush strokes make them true
miniature works of art which are only available at the artists studio or
MuseumsShop of Deutsche Guggenheim.
With the Edition Deutsche Guggenheim, design objects
published in small editions or other cult objects, the MuseumsShop is a
rich source for exclusive gifts from all over the world. The plate crib
in the colourfully painted box is from Mexico, possibly inspired by
Frida Kahlo. The Christmas figures to stick together are hand craft
products from Russia in which Santa Clause hides in a Christmas tree and
that in turn hides in a snowman. The mobile from Denmark showcases
itself in pure white and a clear silhouette.
December 2 onwards you can order Christmas presents and other gifts at
MuseumsShop of Deutsche Guggenheim online. We gladly provide advice on
personalised presents and wrapping.
