At home, I'm a tourist.

Selim Varol collects toys. Seriously. No, I'm serious.
He has been collecting toys since he was a child. His collection has grown to over 15,000 pieces. me Collectors Room in Berlin has put a few thousand of Varol's toys and art pieces on display.
This collection is just drool-worthy.

"The exhibition includes a total of 3,000 works by more than 200 artists & designers from over 20 countries.
Plans are under way to enable artists involved in the exhibition to paint or paste designated facades in the area around the venue.
The exhibition will be accompanied by an extensive catalogue of the collection that will include texts by Jeffrey Deitch as well as Nicolas de Oliveira and Nicola Oxley."

 Thanks to Nik for the heads up.
