    What is beauty?
    What is your definition of beauty?

    Beauty gets us out of bed in the morning and is the reason for our exhaustion late at night: we search for it every second of our existence. It demands our attention, our ambition, our skills, our spirit, our heart, our soul. It demands our life. We should be prepared to die for it.

    Beauty is more than
    a superficial strategy

    Backed by findings in psychological aesthetics, Sagmeister & Walsh argue that beauty is more than just a superficial strategy or an abstract concept. It has a pervasive influence on our everyday lives: when we see beauty, our senses are stimulated, and we experience positive emotions. Moreover, as displayed in the exhibition area “Transforming Beauty”, featuring the installation From Garbage to Functional Beauty by the French designer Thierry Jeannot, beauty even has the power to make the world a better place.

    "The antithesis of beauty is not ugliness,
    it is carelessness."

    — Stefan Sagmeister
