About the exhibition

Does every place have a unique soundscape? Is there such a thing as "worth hearing"? What sounds do people associate with their hometown? Which voices and dialects characterize a region?

The exhibition takes visitors on a journey in which everything revolves around listening and tracing the peculiarities of sound. From personal experiences with the sounds of everyday life, such as those of coffee machines in the morning, the show leads to the collective auditory perception of communities, such as the ringing of church bells that fill entire places with sound. With the help of multimedia virtual reality technology, this story is made tangible to the senses.
