The Bird Show focuses on the attractive symbolic power of the animals as identity-forming creatures as well as their brilliant sensory perception and their inner magnetic compass. This has made them useful assistants to the military in a wide variety of wars, from the Crusaders to the present day. The unique physique of birds and their ability to navigate fascinate engineers and AI experts alike, making hawks and chickens role models for new developments in bionics and robotics. The exhibition also follows the spectacular migration of birds, the secret of which, according to the latest studies, is probably also rooted in quantum mechanics. The ERES Foundation gallery becomes an “aviary of diversity”, where “dirty parrots” meet “famous pigeons”, while flamingos duck away under imaginary fire and canaries warn of poison gas. The show invites to go birding – without binoculars!
