    “GREEN SKY, BLUE GRASS. Colour Coding Worlds”

    Our world is full of colour, but do all cultures see it in the same way? While the scientific basis for perception is identical for everyone, light waves can’t really explain how we name our impressions of colour, the number (and kind) of categories we divide these colours into, or the meanings and associations we ascribe to them.

    Touring the exhibition, Iris Loew shows how perception of colour sometimes differs enormously depending on the language and culture involved. Sign language interpreter Christopher Moeller translates.

    Δ “RED IN FOCUS”

    Theme related guided tour with Oliver Hahn (research assistent Oceania collection)

    In many cultures, the colour red plays a significant role in the way people see the world, whether it is painted on their bodies for beautification and protection, or serves as a sacred colour, or features in the material culture. Consequently, it is a colour that also appears in many different sections of the exhibition “GREEN SKY, BLUE GRASS. Colour Coding Worlds”. 

    Oliver Hahn guides through the exhibiton. He investigates the meaning of red as a colour in various cultures by looking at case studies from the Amazon region, New Guinea and Polynesia. 

    Please register via the booking button “TERMIN BUCHEN”. The number of participants is limited to ten people.

    “Nothing but Originals”

    Are there only originals in a museum or also counterfeits? How can I distinguish them from each other and is there something in between?  In our hands-on collection, we look into the name of the original.We take a close look at the objects, feel and smell them and then we produce high-quality originals ourselves.
