About the exhibition

What do people do in bed? This object is far more than just a piece of furniture. It is the place where we spend the greatest part of our life, and to which we entrust those phases marked by loss of control. The bed is a departure point into the realm of dreams, the location of significant events in our lives; it bears witness to sloth, exhaustion, desperation, feelings of safety, and passion.

The walk around the Stöcklsaal and in interventions in the permanent exhibition throughout the Natural History Museum brings us up against things that make us reflect, that move us; it shifts from the serious to the humorous, playing with erotic moments and putting on show, not least of all, the most famous bed in the world.
