Understanding Body + Form

January 28 to September 1, 2024

Our body is individual and extraordinary in its variety of shapes. Whether round or square, narrow or compact, it accompanies us day after day and is our home. In sculpture, it is an inexhaustible theme and is interpreted in very different ways. The interactive tactile exhibition SHAPE! invites you to literally grasp sculptures with your own hands, separated only by thin gloves. Your own body can be modeled and reinterpreted with the help of fluorescent body paintings and costumes.

The exhibition encourages visitors to become active themselves. It is particularly suitable for language development and takes into account the needs of people with visual or cognitive impairments.
