Special exhibition competition “Bags – Icons & investments”

Pull ideas out of your bag and pack in a prize.
Seeking bag artists
They are small or large, soft or hard, angular or round, fluffy or smooth. They have a simple handle or a shiny gold chain and can be called Falabella, Pompadour, Kelly bag or Ridicule. Very few objects in everyday life can be found in as many forms and designs as the bag – especially a woman’s handbag.

Bags full of surprises
In honor of our special exhibition Bags – Icons & investments we are holding a big competition where you can bag attractive prizes. We are looking for the fanciest, funniest and most romantic ideas on how to turn a normal bag into a work of art. What’s possible is shown by the bags in the exhibition. So, if you want to pack some inspiration into your bag before you take part in the competition, why not visit the special exhibition?

Participation is easy
Participation is both simple and free. All you need is the official bag, which will be ready for pickup at the Spielzeug Welten Museum Basel starting 19 October 2019. After that, imagination is needed. But beware: in the end, the creation should be able to stand on its own. If it fulfills this requirement, the artwork should be given to us by 15 December 2019 at the latest.

Take part in the decision
The creations will be on display in our display window from 25 January to 22 March 2020. If more than 100 bags are submitted, there will be a prejudging session for reasons of space. The audience will select the winners from 25 January to 16 February 2020. Voting can be done online or with cards available at the museum. The creations that score the most points in voting win.

Good luck!
