Tick-tock tectonics

Extended until 27.02.22


When the Earth moves, fascination and anxiety come together. Earthquakes are as unpredictable as they are destructive, and they deserve our attention. Although we cannot prevent them from happening, we can considerably limit the damage they cause by understanding the mechanisms involved and building accordingly.


This exhibition takes you on a playful path along an imaginary fault line, inviting you to unravel the secrets of these impressive geological events.


Although you won’t leave knowing when the next earthquake will occur, you will certainly have a better understanding of why it will happen.


Enjoy your visit and follow the red fault line!
