The face: seeking signs

Date: 01/2017 – 08/2017

Location: Stiftung Deutsches Hygienemuseum Dresden

Client: Deutsches Hygienemuseum Dresden

In the age of selfies, people’s faces are everywhere. But our face can end up being captured by surveillance cameras and by other digital means, even involuntarily. We think about how we can cover our face, either by wearing make-up or by shaving, so that it reflects how we wish to look.

But do others see us the way we wish them to? What factors determine how we are perceived? These questions are the subject of the exhibition, which brings together objects from art, cultural history and science.
molitor is responsible for the exhibition set-up, exhibition lighting, graphic production and media technology.
