Museum für Kommunikation: „GLÜCKSFÄLLE – STÖRFÄLLE. Facetten interkultureller Kommunikation“

The exhibition in one sentence:  An exhibiton about cultures, the contact of different cultures throughout time and the problems and benefits thereof.

I liked: The fact that several important anthropologists were mentioned. In very short texts, it was explained what they stand for and what their theoretical approach to culture was.

I disliked: The fact that the exhibiton was quite fratcured. So many details, so little rigor.

Favorite object: Fulla, the arabic version of Barbie.

What about the exhibition design? First room feels like a jungle, second room is mostly white, but there clearly is a design, which I always prefer over a white room when dealing with topic exhibition.

Fun fact: I guess it's not part of the temporary exhibiton, but approaching it, you can walk on a certain path where your walking-pace is measured. Then, on a world-map, you can check whether you walk as fast as which nationality. Apparently, I walk as fast (or rather as slow) as a Brazilian.

Parental advisory: There is definitely things that kids can enjoy, such as the Barbies from all parts of the world, but there is a lot of text to be read if you fully want to understand the concept. 

Overall rate: An OK exhibition, the problem is, that the curators tried to put too much information into it. Less would have been more.
