The sense of smell can be an instrument of political protest as this current example shows. An investor wants to re-use a former site of terror in Moscow for a perfume store.
Kunstmuseum has cooperated with Scent Culture Institute to explore its collection through the angle of scent. Following this cooperation Schnupperschau, a series of exhibitions, started a year ago. In celebration of the Schnupperschau olfactory series final exhibition, Kunstmuseum Thun is hosting a number of events.
For the fourth and final part of the exhibition series at Kunstmuseum Thun Habib Asal was invited to create an artistic installation that deals with fragrance and the museum collection.
