This week at the Olympic Museum...(04-10.09.2006)
Physical effort exhibition
Until 14 September 2006, restaurant gallery
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. Edication kit. Information on 021 621 65 11.
