The Great Babylon Circus, curated by Lukas Feireiss in collaboration with MU Eindhoven, brings together cutting-edge creatives from the field of art, architecture, and design to engage in the continuation of the never-ending design of the Tower of Babel. The Tower of Babel is one of the primordial metaphors of architecture and construction, as well as of the multiplication and confrontation of diverse languages and styles. The tower also symbolizes the ultimate hubris of human creation -- the ambition to build something larger than life itself. With this central element in mind, the exhibition choreographs ambitious experimental artistic positions from around the globe with a joyful sense of the spectacular.
