In The Architecture of Staged Realities the focus is on the influence of Walt Disney on today’s built society and sense of identity. While he is praised for his technological innovations and the simplicity and familarity of his storytelling, there is another side to Disney and his empire.
The ingenuity with which he seamlessly entwines fairy tales and reality is accompanied by a compelling but one-sided conception of what the resulting wonderful worlds – and their inhabitants – should look like. Discover in this exhibition how Disney’s ideas continue to influence everyday life.
