• image Exhibition Out to Sea? [h2]12/8/-4/23/2017[/h2]The Plastic Garbage Project
    Gigantic amounts of plastic garbage enter the seas every day and are thus gradually
    transforming into a plastic soup – with serious consequences for our health. What happens to a plastic product at the end of its life cycle? The exhibition spotlights the effects of plastic debris as well as examining various possible solutions. The most widely used plastics are presented; questions about consumption, health hazards, microplastic, material cycles or bioplastics are asked.
