Finders Keepers

We are surrounded by objects. We design them, make them, buy them, use them and then forget about them or resell them. And a remarkable number of people also seem to collect them: knives, carpet beaters, roofing tiles, pencils, even staircases. As the curators of the exhibition Finders Keepers, the editors of the design and crafts magazine MacGuffin reveal the universe of the collector, bringing together objects from dozens of collections and exploring the collectors’ strategies, the aesthetic pleasure of collecting and the hidden life of things.
