Mikkel Installation Room. Visit to a Collector

Time: 03.06.17–04.03.18  10:00–17:00
Location: Mikkel Museum

The collector’s room, which has been created to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Mikkel Museum, recalls the private dimension of today’s museum exhibits, when their home was the private collector Johannes Mikkel’s (1907–2006) standard three-room flat in Tallinn. The thematic installation is accompanied by a film and educational programme that helps to bring their interesting stories and the meaning attached by the collector to the public. Because, as Mikkel was wont to say: “Art always finds its way to the person who truly loves it.”

Curator: Greta Koppel
