The Self-Storage Phenomenon.” Photo: Klaus Pichler / Wien Museum We’ve always considered Manhattan Mini Storage advertising campaigns works of art, and now it is official. On February 14, 2019, a few of our favorite ads debuted as part of the exhibition “Where Things Live. The Self-Storage Phenomenon,” at Wien Museum in Vienna, Austria. The exhibition investigates not only how self-storage providers from across the globe address lack of storage space in cities, but also the universal theme of attachment, particularly to one’s stuff. Its central highlight is a collection of portraits of Vienna’s self-storage users and the ‘treasures’ they store. An exploration of an urban landscape from the Wien Museum exhibit.
