CURATORS’ GUIDED TOUR “GREEN SKY, BLUE GRASS. COLOUR CODING WORLDS”.

31.07.2021

Curators’ guided tour with the curator Matthias Claudius Hofmann (Oceania curator) and co-curator Vanessa von Gliszczynski (Southeast Asia curator)

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, curator Matthias Claudius Hofmann and co-curator Vanessa von Gliszczynski show how perception of colour sometimes differs enormously depending on the language and culture involved.
