Lithium is an exhibition that dives deeper into the element that is not only a source of energy for society, but also for ourselves. Conceived as a spa resort (revitalising lithium spas were all the rage in the 19th century), it highlights the beneficial and destructive elements of the eternal human search for energy. Researchers, designers and artists offer their perspectives on an urgent question: how often can we recharge our batteries without addressing the causes of depletion, in both ourselves and the planet? 

Detour guide Asha is an all-rounder who loves to learn and do new things. A chef with a passion for cooking, her favourite things are food, people dancing offbeat and her family.  

If you’re enthusiastic about and familiar with a subject, as well as being good at communicating that, then you’re a good detour guide.”
