Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard once said: “I prefer to speak to children, for at least one dares to hope that they may become creatures of reason.”

But while children have no trouble relating to freedom, they rarely get the opportunity to reflect on it.

FREEDOM!, an exhibition perhaps for the thinking child, questions where freedom comes from, what freedom means to the individual, if mankind is free or if we are more like robots. 

Meet a three-metre tall robot, search for a four-leaf clover and be guided through the exhibition by an origami paper fortune teller.
