From the red room to a Museum of Colours
Right now, our team works hard towards the creation of an exhibition about The Colours of Berlin, which is a significant step towards the implementation of a Museum of Colours.
The first idea came on the mind of Natacha Le Duff, the project initiator. It was several years ago. The idea was about a red room where one would have found together a clown‐nose, a Coca‐Cola logo, a communist flag… paying attention about underlining contrasts associated to these symbols. And then the French flag, where red stands together with white and blue, popped up to my mind. There we see that sometimes colours only make sense together.
It starts with the questions: Could we present colours as a whole – including the ways they connect to one another? Does it make sense to consider these cultural examples without the scientific approach of colours?
Soon, Natacha was dreaming of a place that would allow a sensorial, intellectual, interactive and puzzling approach.
A first stone, a virtual space to get news about the project and to exchange ideas.
This is the story of a slightly crazy idea which is actually not new. It is the adventure of a Museum of Colours. It is the challenge of crossing disciplines which study and use colours, in a space which will present the diversified knowledge linked to them.
Out of measure, exciting, multidisciplinary; in gestation, with passion, for an international calling; talk about, support, co-create.
