Hubertus Wald Kids’ World
A fantasy world, a Garden of Things, where kids can learn in a hands-on way and play through specially conceived scenarios to bring home to them how many different ways there are to design and make things. This is where they can experience for themselves what odd and quirky results the imagination of designers in clothes, furniture, typology or appliances can produce. In this magical world stretching over 250 square metres, kids from 5 to 12 can try their hand at being designers, architects or artists. They can shape things, invent and build things, take photographs and make cartoon films, dress up or play with shadows. Grown-ups interested in design can also discover unusual and innovative things in our hands-on area, watched over by helpful attendants.
“Animals are a frequent subject of debate these days. Do they have a soul? How much do they suffer? Are we under any obligation to protect their individuality by granting them rights? Are human beings morally authorized to do as they want with animals, to consume them, rob them of their freedom and train them for the purposes of entertainment? Scientific discussion takes the relationship between animal and human being very seriously. In the everyday life of our consumption-oriented society, on the other hand, that relationship oscillates between unreflecting exploitation and sentimental anthropomorphization. Against the background of these contrasts, the exhibition will be geared primarily towards informing visitors and sensitizing them to ways and means of respectful co-existence.”
