free admission, registration required for [sound]expansion
Sound reaches us directly, and yet it is fleeting. As a vibrant process of exchange it triggers deep emotions. Sound challenges and moves us – in every culture, and in every era.
The fascination with sounds and the different ways we process them is brought to life in our upcoming exhibition [sound] Listening to the World. The exhibition will be accompanied by a wide spectrum of events that gives visitors the chance to "tune in" to topics on several frequencies.
