The geological and historical development of the forest as well as its use by humans form the main themes of the exhibition. Starting from the various epochs of the earth’s history, the exhibition spins a tight web of stories around the forest: they sketch its functions and show human influence, allowing us to imagine the sheer energy of the forest and how that has been harnessed by humans. And also it tells about the myth of natural, wild, immutable forests, how they limit the horizon. Specific themes from the realms of culture, nature and art explore the subject of the forest, setting it in regional, national and international contexts. In this way time horizons from the past, present and future are made tangible to the visitor by means of graphic examples.
