The annual â€œBad Taste Exhibitionâ€ at the Museum of Things in Berlin, Germany, began 100 years ago as the â€œCabinet of Bad Tasteâ€ display by Gustav E. Pazaurek.
Rather than the current connotation of only politically incorrect, age-inappropriate, or otherwise offensive material, the current Bad Taste Exhibition includes all types of product designs that were considered to be â€œmistakesâ€ for any reason.
Implications - Strange, abnormal items are great for those who appreciate modern, abstract artwork. These items often come from companies who specialize in alternative culture-inspired products that are popular among those looking for a deviation from the norm. These pop culture-inspired designs attract a large market who want something fresh, exciting and unconventional with a quirky aesthetic.
