At the Futurium Museum in Berlin, Germany, everything revolves around the question: “How do we want to live?”
During the weekend of November 27 and 28, 2021, the museum launched its “Mobility” exhibit focusing on questions of global mobility such as who is mobile, what are the effects of human-made borders, and how do we affirm the right to freedom of travel.
“Until now, there’s been an unfair distribution of opportunities for being mobile and for freely choosing where one wants to base one’s life. We’ve been asking ourselves how we might imagine a world in which each and every individual is free to travel and to be at home anywhere in the world,” says Dr. Gabriele Zipf, Head of Exhibitions.
The exhibit features World Citizen Garry Davis, along with a sample copy of Davis’s World Passport. CGS Board Member and Young World Federalists President Eston McKeague attended the launch of the exhibit which will run for the next few years.
“Mobility permeates all areas of life. It’s not just about the movement of nature, people and things – but also of ideas and knowledge. We want to convey this holistic perspective on one of the major topics of the future in the exhibition and in the Lab, in workshops and in discussion rounds and, of course, in our digital programme,” says Futurium Director Dr. Stefan Brandt.
Individual stories told by people on the move, the flight of a mythical bird through the future, and a game of self-assessment encourage visitors to bring themselves closer to this complex topic. Interactive exhibits provide visitors with new perspectives on sustainable urban mobility and transport.
