Workshop: scale 1:87 
Workshop for the 3rd– 10th school year, vocational and secondary schools

How does a train get into the museum? Why are the cars and houses suddenly so small? In the exhibition “Building Worlds” the proportions are crazy. What is large becomes small, the small large. We immerse ourselves in the contemporary world of models from the areas of design, architecture, science, technology and everyday culture and in the process discover entirely new perspectives. In the workshop that follows we build our own fantastical realities and make small people seem very big. In the process familiarize ourselves with tips and tricks from the world of model photography!
