Staff at the Kartause Ittingen
Kunstmuseum Thurgau, CH

The Kartause Ittingen is a former Carthusian Monestary and the vast estate is now being managed by a civic foundation. It includes agriculture and gardening, all sorts of crafts from pottery to carpentry, hotel, seminar spaces and a restaurant, sheltered living for people with learning disabilities and it is also the site of the Kustmuseum Thurgau. As part of the "10.000 Hours" exhibition, the museum has commissioned myvillages.org to develop a new product in relation to the locality, which - together with a permanent version of a small International Village Shop - will enter the museum's collection.
In May 2012 we started to meet staff, and to collect first ideas and intentions for a new product, which will be launched as prototype in late September 2012.
