‘All department stores will become museums”


General Culture

Andy Warhol once said that “all department stores will become museums, and all museums will become department stores.” I’m not sure that’s really true, but it definitely sounds cool (until you start thinking about it - which is the essence of so many things done/said by Andy Warhol). But then what if you were to look at a department store “whose doors had last admitted patrons nearly 30 years ago […] left in its original condition and regularly maintained and cleaned by its owners”? Well, have a look. For those unable to read German, images samples can be found here, and there’s some info here.
