design / concept of specification list
There are real-life and fictional heroes. Each generation redefines its heroes. Almost every day, the media report on new heroes and their deeds, and each week, on children’s television, in movies and in computer games, hundreds of them fight for a better world.
The exhibition invites four- to fourteen-year-old children to join a trip around the world. The exhibition introduces Superman, Spiderman and Pippi Langstrumpf as well as heros from foreign countries such as Shaktimaan and Krrish from India, princess Mononoke and Nausicaä from Japan and The 99 and Ajaaaj from the Middle East.
Roaming through the urban jungle, fantasy landscapes and far away galaxys the children get to the "labyrinth of audicy" to find the hero inside themselves. In the costume workshop they may design and realize their own hero outfit.
