The exhibition Dieter Rams. A Look Back and Ahead is once again returning to the Museum Angewandte Kunst, Frankfurt am Main, from where the traveling exhibition started in April 2021. It has since been on display at the Goethe Institutes in New York and in Washington, as well as at the ADI Design Museum in Milan and the Stadtmuseum Wiesbaden, the birthplace of Dieter Rams. Having returned to the Museum Angewandte Kunst, it is now becoming a part of a larger project. Titled Dieter Rams Forum, the exhibition will include photographs taken by his wife Ingeborg Rams that have never been shown to the public.
On the occasion of the opening of the Dieter Rams Forum, we cordially invite you to an evening with Dieter Rams on November 10, 2023 at 7 pm at the Museum Angewandte Kunst.

Ingeborg Rams joined Braun in 1957 after an apprenticeship as a photographer in Bochum and studies at the Folkwangschule in Essen. Together with photographer Marlene Schnelle-Schneyder, she played a major role in shaping the objective style of interior and product photography. In addition to her freelance work, she also produced numerous applied photographs for the company Vitsœ, the manufacturer of Dieter Rams’ system furniture.
The now 91-year-old Dieter Rams was and is not only concerned with his own work, but also with possibilities and fields of action for a younger generation of designers. Less but better is his credo, which is no less relevant today. On the contrary, it has become increasingly important the more our natural environment is worn down. The work of Dieter Rams has shown a path that can be followed and developed further. The temporary Dieter Rams Forum at the Museum Angewandte Kunst would like to be a platform for this, a place of encounters and knowledge transfer.
