Exhibition "Of Love" at the Palais de la Découverte

What is love? A matter of circumstance as Valentine's Day blows its romantic air all over the capital. To try to answer this question, take the person you love to the Palais de la Découverte. The exhibition "De l'amour", which runs until August 30, will help you to dig deeper into the subject. Original and instructive!



To approach love from a scientific angle, the case is not new. And the exhibit at the Palais de la Découverte proves it to you. Scientific works on the subject are numerous, in biology, neuroscience, psychology, sociology, anthropology... They are just as numerous on the art side.



Love is a universal, central, enigmatic feeling, too, and difficult to define. The Attachment Gallery and the Science Gallery invite you to probe this feeling, to dissect its multiple facets, to explore its ever-changing territories.



The gallery of attachments is interested in the four meanings of the word "love" as found in the Greek language: érōs, desire, carnal passion, storgê, family love, agapē, selfless love and philía, friendship, social bond.



The Science Gallery offers various fragments of scientific discourse around seven eclectic topics: What is love? Attachment, a bond that protects, a bond that liberates. Love online. How does the body manifest itself? The art of loving others. Proof of love. How is sexuality made?



Thanks to participatory games, multimedia installations, presentations of objects, situations, poems, quotations, images... the route is meant to be fun, interactive and full of surprises.



A beautiful declaration of love from the museum to its visitors but also to your better half.
