New perspective in the Natural History Museum – A tour of the museum
An exhibition in an exhibition
Museo Mundial is a European project and ran at the same time in Portugal, in the Czech Republic and in Hungary. In Germany it was carried out jointly by the Natural History Society and by finep, the form for international development and planning. It was financially supported by the European Union and by Engagement Global/BMZ.
In the permanent exhibitions of the Natural History Museum you can now also inform yourself about current global questions. Ten installations focus on topics that affect consumers directly and which are associated directly or indirectly with today’s lifestyle.
Hence, for example, in the Pacific Department fishing methods in the South Seas are described and reasons examined for overfishing in this region. In the Africa Department the working conditions in today’s cotton industry are depicted – including tips for one’s own “consumption” of clothing.
Thus, an exhibition in an exhibition arose: the Museo Mundial. A flyer suggests a tour leading to the individual installations. Simply follow the numbers.
Using a tablet or a Smartphone you can receive more background information. Simply scan in the QR-Codes on the installations and more information will be displayed.
