The aim is to display historical items with a powerful connection to the building in a respectful manner. This display provides the possibility to choose which objects are going to be shown and can simultaneously start a conversation about the history of the objects and the relationship they have to the location.
Our personal history, and the heirlooms that come with that, are not always stories which we are proud of or are beautiful. We have the tendency to hide the dark side of our past behind the beautiful stories and objects.
We sometimes go as far as destroying the past we inherit, we choose to give heirlooms to museums, hide them in our houses or even throw them away.
