From prehistoric times until the 1970s, objects for the household or daily use were stored and repaired. They often survived for many generations. The use of natural raw materials, the lack of (financial) resources, and human creativity as well as old crafts, made this possible. It changed in the consumer society and by the use of plastics and its derivatives. Many technical devices (computers, mobile phones) became disposable items.
The exhibition (Jeter versus conserver) sheds light on old craft techniques and the preservation of objects by repairing and caring for the material and shows examples of repair techniques and restored objects. It is, above all, a meaningful exhibition for young people. They demonstrate for the climate, but they often show no care for materials and the sustainable use of natural raw materials and technical devices. They make the reparation the exception.
