Collapse is an exhibition about what can happen when nature disrupts our world. We humans try our best to control nature, but nature repeatedly throws us into chaos and forces us to look at the world from a new perspective.
Through this guided visit in the Collapse exhibition, you will learn about people who, in different ways and at different times, live between control and chaos:
- In the distant past we meet Stone Age pioneers who ventured north and made a new life for themselves along the coast of Norway after the collapse of the Ice Age
- We travel east to The Pacific and see how people in Polynesia held chaos at bay with the help of caution (tapu) and daring (mana)
- We meet today´s urban gardeners who are exploring new ways of living in response to the threat of ecological collapse that faces us today
More information about the exhibition can be found on the museum's webpages.
