The city of Biel/Bienne is renowned for its bilingualism and as a "language laboratory" it is said to have model character. However, the town's "linguistic laboratory" is not limited to French and German. Many different languages are to be heard in its streets, at school and in the workplace. Is it 50, 100 or even 150 languages that are spoken in Biel/Bienne?
The exhibition explores the history of languages in the region and sheds light on the effects of multilingualism in business, politics, education, culture and in history.
