    “GREEN SKY, BLUE GRASS. Colour Coding Worlds”

    with Claudia Gaida

    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.

    Using various objects from the exhibition, Claudia Gaida shows how perception of colour sometimes differs enormously depending on the language and culture involved.

    “Festival of Colours and Shadows”
    Indonesian summer festival at the Weltkulturen Museum

    Δ FESTIVAL OF COLOURS AND SHADOWS

    Indonesian summer festival at the Weltkulturen Museum

    There’s going to be a colourful Indonesian summer festival in Metzlerpark on Saturday, 20 August from 5 pm to 8 pm – and you’re all most welcome to come along! The Weltkulturen Museum will be your host for this event, marking the conclusion of the eye-catching exhibition “Green Sky, Blue Grass: Colour Coding Worlds”. Metzlerpark is situated directly behind the museum at Schaumainkai 35.

    The festival will feature alternating performances from gamelan orchestra Wacana Budaya Höchst and the Indonesian shadow play puppeteer Sigit Susanto. The latter will be performing scenes from the Indian epics Mahabharata and Ramayana through the medium of wayang kulit – Indonesian shadow puppetry – bringing black heroes and red rogues to life in thrilling and thought-provoking stories for young and old alike.

    The programme will include insights from South-East Asia curator Vanessa von Gliszczynski, who will talk about Javanese shadow puppetry with a particular emphasis on the colours used in wayang kulit.

    An Indonesian food market will provide snacks and refreshments, which you can enjoy on your own picnic blanket in Museumspark accompanied by the sounds of the gamelan orchestra and shadow puppetry performances.



    Admission is free of charge!
    In Metzlerpark, behind the Weltkulturen Museum, Schaumainkai 35
