Migration. Moving the World

19.05.2017 - 21.01.2018

Human history is marked by migration. The phenomenon has shaped the lives and values of people around the globe and informed the economic and political development of countries and nations throughout the ages. But why do people migrate and what is set in motion by migration? The exhibition opens the door to world history as well as current affairs, Switzerland included. Objects slip into the role of migrants and come alive, offering a completely new perspective on issues we find ourselves confronted with every day.
