Before the Expo.02 |
After the Expo
What goes on in the mind of a Kubilay Türkyilmaz, a Sophie Lamon or an André Bucher? What drives such top athletes? In careers like these, there is a time for competition and for training, a time for success, and also a time for self-doubt. Nor should we forget the injuries and comebacks. Circuit shows sport in a way you won’t get to see otherwise, either on the ground or on television.
Garden of Eden – Fascination of Health
In the Garden of Eden the world was a place of order and harmony, so the creation story tells us. Until humans picked the forbidden fruit of the tree of knowledge and were expelled from that blissful place. Ever since, we have been filled with longing – for vigorous, lasting health of body and mind. Utopia?
Kids.expo is a world in itself – a swirling galaxy in the universe of children. For over two years, children aged 5-13 from Switzerland and other countries have been pooling their brainwaves and inventions for Expo.02, thereby offering themselves and adults a surprise present full of their vitality, imagination
and wishes, but also of their fears.
Le premier regard
Communication – life is full of communication, whether it be verbal or non-verbal. Aren't there always a number of lingering questions concerning communication? Has my listener understood me? Has a reader known how to interpret a message properly? What language should we use to communicate with each other within Switzerland? Within Europe?
There are plenty of exciting journeys to choose from. Along the way, they illustrate in a light-hearted manner the historical roots of Swiss place names in all their richness.
The exhibition "Oui!" opens doors and perspectives for couples with an adventurous spirit. This is not an exhibition in the classic sense, nor is it an interactive installation. The focus is on couples. And it is the couples who decide whether their visit to Expo.02 will turn into a memorable experience.
Migraine, toothache, stiff muscles, rheumatism – we all know what pain is and we all want to avoid it. Yet pain is not just an unpleasant, harrowing sensation to be avoided at all costs. There is a lot more to pain than meets the eye: it can be a signal or an opportunity; it can make us angry or take our breath away; it can be a burden; and some people even enjoy it. SIGNALPAIN deals with an extreme dimension of our feelings and senses which concerns us all. There is no hiding from it, whether we like it or not.
Moving at the movies
Visitors to this summer’s national exhibition are being promised an unusual cinematic trip into the world of sport – thanks to a 360 degree movie show choreographed by bicycles.
Charming stories of daily life in Switzerland against a romantic backdrop, told in an unusual manner with warmth, wit and irony. Best of all, the public is spoilt for choice in these films: you can use your imagination to rewrite the plot yourself. However, you may be in for some surprises.
Wer bin ich?
Is it possible to know who we are? Some questions have no real answers, which is precisely why they are important – as a permanent driving force and challenge for us. Once we stop asking them, we’re already lost. This is the point of departure for Wer bin ich? (who am I?). It confronts us with the big as well as the small questions of life, using a mirror that you won’t find in any home on this planet.
Viewers choose ending for Expo.02 love story
Next year’s Expo.02 will feature something special in Yverdon-les-Bains – an interactive love story for which the audience gets to choose the ending.
