This week at the Olympic Museum…(03-09.07.2006)

The eyes have it: from spectator to supporter exhibition
Until 16 July 2006 at the restaurant
When you can see sport in the eyes of the spectators, everyone is involved. From the amused look to the scowl, from the embrace to the hand raised to strike, the expressions and attitudes of those living through the game are touching, comic and sometimes tragic: infinitely human, in other words. Exhibition created by the Information Management Department. IOC photographic archives collection.
Angel or Demon? The Choice of Fair Play exhibition
Until 5 November 2006
Whether in sport or in our daily lives, human beings choose, suffer or impose their behaviour. In competition as in play, the balance between self control and impulsiveness, respecting or deviating from a line of conduct, is a very delicate one. This exhibition on fair play asks the visitor to consider his own angels and demons and confronts him with the fragile balance of the human relations. These games of mirrors, situations, confrontation, reflection and feelings illustrate the fact that fair play is not incompatible with performance, even at the very top, and that its absence destroys the very concepts of play and sharing. A conclusion which is certainly valid in the field of sport but also in our daily lives.
Kids’ programme: It’s not always easy to play fair
Visit - Role plays (with coordinator)
Tour of the exhibition followed by a workshop in which the participants use role plays to work on their behaviour in certain situations arising in sport and everyday life. Education kit. Information on 021 621 65 11.
Triathlon Passion exhibition
From 6 July to 15 October 2006
The 13th Lausanne Triathlon will be taking place on 26 and 27 August, followed by the Triathlon World Championships on 2 and 3 September. This is a chance for the Olympic Museum to devote an exhibition to this young event which became an Olympic sport at the 2000 Games in Sydney.
