HUMANORIUM is a contemporary art extravaganza in the form of a decidedly strange carnival Inspired by the tradition of the 19th and 20th-century country fair. This travelling exhibition gathers twelve spectacular “attractions” that showcase the work of leading visual artists and multidisciplinary collectives to pose vital questions on what it means to be human today.
HUMANORIUM is an intriguing contemporary art experience where everyone feels welcome to discover a plethora of wonderful works! An outdoor gathering like no other that gives audiences the opportunity to discover powerful artworks, free of charge, in a one-of-a-kind, accessible environment.
