Elefant – Mensch – Elfenbein
20. Juli – 28. November 2021
The exhibition presents the intriguing interconnection between elephant, human and ivory. In a world- and epoch-spanning narrative, it progresses from small to large: from an ivory fragment to the image of the tusk right up to the entire animal, linking the cultural significance of ivory with its natural history, as well as the social and ecological consequences of its use.
