Curator Jasper Shap has given Wes Anderson and Juman Malouf free reign over the Kunsthistorisches Museum. Using the institution's massive collection of over 4 million objects, the director and his partner have curated their own exhibit. The couple have pulled pieces from 14 collections that include Egyptian Antiquities, Imperial Armoury, and Old Master Paintings ensuring the show will be a predictably quirky mix of bizarre historical findings.
