Deutsches Museum


The IFF has news from the Deutsches Museum in Munich, the world’s largest science and technology museum, famed for its enormous collection of machines. One of our crochet Satellite Reefs was featured in their ground-breaking show Welcome to the Anthropocene, hailed as “the first major exhibition” on this subject. A post-exhibit survey has revealed that the Reef was “the second-most liked” object in the show, and in a welcome break from tradition drew a wide female audience into a venerable institution whose audience is overwhelmingly male. The Reef – picture above – is an outcropping of the Fohr Satellite Reef specially constructed for the Deutsches Museum show.
