The study gave birth to this exhibition with its original musical score, a book, a free entrance conference on Thursday 29 April, two free seminaries March 26th and April 16th and the free projection of different documentaries each Thursdays. It is possible to visit the exhibition with free guidance of the curators too. The ticket to the exhibition is 5 Euro.
