It is impossible to imagine what our life would be like without all the underground train stations, shopping centers and cinemas, without the tunnels and water reservoirs. The world under the ground is immensely ramified and moves between possibility, idea and necessity. Additional space is made underground, also to keep things that are worth protecting, that are secret, or even dangerous. This applies to bank vaults, government bunkers or final disposal sites but also to the “underground” movement, which takes over cellars of all kinds. Other people spend entire days underground because they work or find shelter there. Using photographs, models or films the exhibition shows significant national and international buildings and presents the underground as a habitat that in the future will probably shape our everyday life to a far greater extent.

Guided Tours, Exhibition Talks and Workshops

The educational program of the exhibition opens a dialogue by means of tours. It offers creative confrontations in workshops for schools or for families. Walks invite to explore the Underground and week-long projects awaken an interest in design experiments during vacation.
