Visiting the Nonseum


Today I’d like to take you to a museum of another kind: the Nonseum! Sounds funny – and it is, in the best possible way!

Elevation simulators for folks living in the lowlands, or a sandwich box for veal sausages, a historic collection of buttons with Napoleon’s precious button hole, or a collection of socks separated from their partner – that’s just a few impressive pieces in the exhibition of a quite heterogeneous collection.

Some good nonsense happens when something goes totally wrong and yet remains elegant. Nonsense requires a lot of discipline and empathy, which only sounds exaggerated at the first moment. It requires some sort of fantastic functionality and absurd logic that can only be grasped in reciprocal ways. Sense embedded in nonsense is the slogan which the Nonseum guarantees on its website.

You’re confused and don’t quite get the concept? Then you feel just the way I did before I took my first step into the Nonseum. So just look at the photos I took on my trip through the slightly absurd craziness and get inspired. As usual the pictures were taken with my Canon 5D MarkIII and my all-time favorite lens, the 50mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art.
