Matching the BIOTOPIA Festival SENSE on October 1 and 2, 2022, our current installation revolves around the scent of extinct plants. The installation "Resurrecting the Sublime" by Christina Agapakis, Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg and Sissel Tolaas allows visitors to smell extinct flowers that have been eradicated by colonial activities. The exhibition not only offers an unexpected glimpse into what has been lost, but also challenges us to reflect on our own actions....
The festival program is here! For an entire weekend, young and old are invited to Munich-Nymphenburg to discover the world of perception and experience cutting-edge science in an entertaining way.
BIOTOPIA - Naturkundemuseum Bayern invites you to its BIOTOPIA Festival under the motto "SENSE - the Power of Perception" on October 1 and 2! Visitors can immerse themselves in the world of sensory perception of humans, animals and other species.
This year’s participation in the project is outstanding. Since the beginning of the year, more than 13,000 recordings from 46 countries have been uploaded – significantly more than in the last two years combined! Every single one of them helps to expand the collection database, and thus supports experts in their future research on biodiversity. BIOTOPIA and LBV say Thank You to all participants!
BIOTOPIA - Naturkundemuseum Bayern is organizing a new festival in October 2022 - this year with the theme "SENSE - The Power of Perception". We are looking for volunteers to bring the program to life for young and old.
