The MAKs extensive ceramics holdings, which are stored in the Arenbergpark flak or combat tower due to their sheer volume,
have been subject to an inventory and audit, been processed, and documented in photographic form. With the aim of establishing
a kind of open-access warehouse, parts of the holdings have been stored in easily accessible, new shelving systems. It has
already been possible to record the following areas of the Collection: Friedrich Goldscheider Manufactory, Medieval
Pots, and Ceramic Objects from the Figdor Collection. The focus of the documentary work as well as of the
scientific and conservational processes is now the MAKs significant collection of glazed tiles and tiled stoves.
