fig.: Kids with symbols of luck - For the spring festival Chinese children carry lamps in form of the new year's animal from the Chinese horoscope.

The exhibition presents the world of children in China and Europe of today and its tradition. What are the differences in becoming grown ups, how do their toys look like, what are the effects of one child families in China to the "we"-culture of Chinese people and how does the new European structure of small families with one or two children and singles influence the social systems?

Since thousands of years children are symbols of luck in China. Children represent the innocence of holy Buddha. next>>>
