For Infinity: 400 years of Science
Der Aa-Kerk exhibition
The exhibition in the Der Aa-Kerk presents a closer look at the rich history of the university, on the basis of the rich collection of instruments and preparations of the University Museum. At the same time it offers a look into the distant future, with interactive set-ups, games, discussions and spectacles. From 1614 until eternity.
If science has a label, is there then an expiration date?
- What is life or what is illness? Each answer began four centuries ago with the bible in hand, but in the year 2014 synthetic biologists are making new life in a laboratory.
- Where are heaven and earth? Will oil and gas be used up for all the people on earth?
- What is order, what is law? How does it change over the centuries?
- Who makes the university? Which people stand in the window of science?
The result is a quirky exhibition, with a beautiful panorama on the significance of science.
