About Dr. Angelika Nollert

Dr. Angelika Nollert is Director of Die Neue Sammlung – The Design Museum.

With more than 100,000 items from the areas of industrial design, graphic design, computer culture, mobility, and arts and crafts, Die Neue Sammlung – The Design Museum is one of the largest and most important museums of applied art of the 20th and 21st centuries. Not only considered the world’s oldest design museum, it is also a leader in the fields of industrial and product design.

From the very beginning, Die Neue Sammlung distinguished itself from the museums of applied arts or arts-&-crafts museums at that time – by consciously championing what was then modern and thus cutting-edge, contemporary design. To this very day, this clear agenda defines the objectives of the museum.


Angelika Nollert is with Tulga Beyerle and Claudia Banz jury member of the GDG Culture Prize, an annual cash prize that goes to a project that is characterized by attitude, innovation and impact the most. In addition, as a director and curator of Die Neue Sammlung she is always looking out for talents that can be suitable for example for small presentations or who would fit in future thematic exhibitions.
