GREEN SKY, BLUE GRASS. COLOUR CODING WORLDS

Our world(s) are full of colours, but not every culture sees things in the same way. While the biological capacity for perception is identical all over the world, the meanings and associations thereby evoked can sometimes differ greatly. Featuring exhibits in the museum’s collection from locations such as New Guinea, the Amazon, Tibet and Java, this exhibition explores the material nature of colours and examines research from the perspectives of language and symbolism.
