Location of the exhibition
The exhibition is being put on in a previously undiscovered and unused pearl of industrial architecture: the Schwelhalle in Balingen. 70 metres long, 15 metres wide and 17 metres high, it is impressive by virtue of its dimensions alone, but also due to the original, rugged architecture. In the middle of this hall is a temporary metal and glass pavilion, modern and perfect in design. These elements complement and mutually energise each other. Space for a participatory experience: the Schwelhalle in Balingen-Frommern.
