Human Traces – World Heritage

The Aalto2 opening exhibition sheds light on the heritage of the past and, through it, reflects on the present and the future – what traces of our time will be left for posterity? The exhibition as a whole, to be shown at the museum centre, consists of a series of five displays that explore the diversity of built and cultural heritage. 

The exhibition produced by the Alvar Aalto Museum and the Museum of Central Finland, presents both tangible and intangible heritage, from the Great Wall of China and Finnish sauna culture to modern architecture, linking it to works by Alvar Aalto. The curation and design of the exhibition are by the Finnish-Spanish architect duo Anna and Eugeni Bach. Each of the five displays making up the whole shed light on the concept of heritage: World Heritage, Famous Sites, Finnish Sauna Culture, Finland and the World, The Moderns.
