BIG

Things Interpretations Dimensions
Exhibitions
Big is great! Big things impress us and evoke awe. But what is so fascinating about size? Does big mean the same thing across the world or are there cultural differences? Who sets the measures, how are height, length and width defined? We take a close look at big things and their meanings. Come and judge for yourself.
Cultural dimensions of size in focus – the new exhibition “BIG – Things Interpretations Dimensions”
