How will we enhance ourselves to become better as a species? Will it be socially and ethically acceptable if boundaries of the body are overstepped through technological extensions?

As one of the most extraordinary versatile motif, the serpent has slithered into many artistic periods and practices as a prominent source of inspiration, even taking the mantel of muse for the Bulgari Serpenti Collection. Join our SERPENTIform guided tour as we shed away the many skins worn by this mystifying emblem, and discover a rich language of artistic inspiration, imagination and ingenuity.

Venue: Rainbow Room, Basement 2

Our fascination with motion and illusion is as old as the story of human civilisation. Also known as the wheel of life, zoetropes produce animations through slits in rotating cylinders.
