During his 15 years directing Berlin’s Museum of Things, Andreas Murkudis has established himself in the city’s art scene. He opened his first store in a backyard in Mitte in 2003 (always seeking creative and unassigned surroundings), moved to Schöneberg in 2011 and then relocated to the former printing workshop of the daily newspaper Tagesspiegel.
Now, on Potsdamer Strasse, Andreas Murdkudis is found among a variety of art galleries. This vast industrial space exhibits a unique selection of products in a museum-like atmosphere, where the objects do not bow to trends. Each of them tells a story of its own and grows in value over time. Visitors are encouraged to take their time and explore the curated selection of products and their stories. Hosting brand showcases and special events, Andreas Murkudis frequently invites friends and clientele to develop playful relationships with the store, as well as give fresh impetus and inspiration, in a place where attitudes become form.
