to celebrate 100 years of the opportunity to open and share the association’s historical buildings with visitors as the so-called ‘museum houses’, XSAGA has designed a campaign that shows the beauty of the buildings and their interiors in an extraordinary way. each photo shows a magical and poetic image of an iconic historical interior from different phases in time. together, they form a series of photos that make viewers curious, encourage them to share stories, and invite the audience to step into the wonderful world of those buildings.
