About us

This is the story of a crazy idea, the adventure of a Museum of Colours at the crossroads of disciplines, a space that presents them in all their diversity. For more than five years our association has been working on the creation of a permanent exhibition space to talk about colours, their perception, their use. After setting up a first cycle of exhibitions and numerous collaborations with artists and cultural institutions all over the world, we are working on the establishment of this permanent place in Berlin. A place open to all, to discover, to marvel and to be enhanced.

A space that will exist soon – thanks to you.

THEY TALK ABOUT IT

Colour is essentiel to our life. A Museum that treats this topic brilliantly is thus as well… essentiel.

Jean-Gabriel CausseDesigner and specialist of colours’ influences

A Museum of Colours for Berlin is long overdue and would represent a great enrichment.

Dr. Klaus StaubermannResearcher, specialist in the history of color perception

I began working with the Museum of Colours in January of 2017, and it’s been one of the most rewarding collaborations of my career. Each new project creates fun new challenges to solve, and I enjoy every minute of it.

« Museum of Colours » ! A great project, unimaginable. Not only does Natacha Le Duff organise didactic and artistic events in a constantly evolving place, but she is also connected to the whole world of colours.

Patrick CalletPrésident of the French Colour Center

I have had the pleasure of collaborating with the museum of colors during the openings of their exhibitions. It’s always very exciting to see this team working. The result is magical and each time I am dazzled by the diversity of ideas related to colours.

Ein Museum der Farben e.V.

In 2013 a group was formed around this idea: to create the first museum in the world dedicated to colours. It would be place to discover colours, their particularities and their meanings, and a place of exchange and dialogue between cultures, ages, disciplines. The association Ein Museum der Farben e.V. was born.

Based in Berlin, it was recognized as a general interest in 2015. The goal of the association is to set up an exhibition space dedicated to colours. Read more
