A museum of Fashion, Arts and Design, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs has created a new circuit for its modern and contemporary collections. Favouring a more thematic approach, it places the works in their context by combining design and fashion, graphic design and archives, toys and wallpaper, glass and photography, in a new dialogue without creating any hierarchies. Varying the approaches this way, each space has been conceived around important moments in the life of forms, major personalities, often connected to the museum, movements that have marked the history of taste and of the object, whether it is a work of art or an industrial object. This circuit composes a “history of the museum” as it is reflected in its unusual identity and in its collections, which are never linear and are always changing. From digital humanism to the virtuosity of the gesture, it provides keys to understanding much of today’s world.
