NONA: Look at me!

An exhibition for the whole family

20. Mar 2021 - 29. May 2022

Look at me!
What do you look like when you are happy? And what happens to your body when you are surprised? Through our body language we can communicate how we feel or how we want to be seen. In this exhibition you can see pictures of people in many different situations. Some characters are cheerful, curious, funny, annoyed or daydreaming. Others are in a teasing mood and want attention or have dressed up to look like someone else. You will find portraits and self-portraits, imprints of the body and an artwork that mirrors yourself.

NONA is the children's place. The works of art cannot be touched, but the mascot NONA guides you to places in the exhibition which are interactive. Follow NONA through the gold frame, make funny faces in a mirror on the wall, create a shadow theatre using you own body or take a few dance steps in front of a video work.
