Participation in Public Space
Once a year, the Burning Man Festival takes place in the Nevada desert. Over 75,000 participants get together to create a temporary world and social utopia, focused on radical openness, inclusion and community. In the summer of 2018, the Museum for Values brings its first special exhibition to this extraordinary place with new challenges. For one week, the exhibitions and stories of 150 co-curators are shown and collected in the camp of PlatyBus & The Band – 24/7, even in the most extreme weather conditions. The festival follows a contribution principle and is very value-oriented, it’s a place of reflection, boundary-testing and for discussion of different world views. The stories and objects on the values of vitality, respect and friendship help visitors to get to know each other better and open up new perspectives. The day belongs to art – at night we dance!
