Frankfurt Corona Collection at HMF

A selection of the 200 objects and 250 uploads that have been collected so far will be on display until autumn in the exhibition area "Frankfurt Now!"

Together with all Frankfurt's residents, the HMF documents how the pandemic changed and continues to change everyday life and city life. Since the appeal to the urban population at the end of March, around 200 "Corona objects" have been proposed for the museum collection, and in the CityLab Digital, around 250 uploads have been made by around 60 people. A selection of the approximately 450 submissions is currently being presented in the City Lab.

The HMF continues to collect information on how to deal with the easings after the lock down and the constantly changing experiences with the pandemic. The curators of the HMF would like to discuss together with the respondents and the public in the course of this and the coming year through workshops or other (also digital) formats how and what will be included in the collection. Anyone wishing to participate can do so via the City Lab Digital or contact the curators responsible:

Find out more on social media: the blog was brought to life upon the demolition of the concrete structure and gives an insight into the everyday life of the museum. The museum uses Facebook to spark interest in events and make connections to current topics. A Twitter account was initiated in 2012 by enthusiastic employees. On Instagram, there is a focus on exhibits; YouTube features films.  We look forward to interaction on all channels!
