Wisent, Bison, Buffalo

Wisent, Bison, Buffalo

September 15th until November 04th, 2018

Large scale photographs by Heidi and Hans-Jürgen Koch from America, the „Bison country“, show the highly symbolic animal in all its complexity. Impressive close ups take turns with marvelous pictures of grand bison herds against the background of breathtaking landscapes. The exhibition gets an archaeological upgrade in the Neanderthal Museum by adding replicas of natural- and culture-historical objects, ranging from bison as prehistoric prey and expressive motive of mysterious cave art up to today’s wisents in the wildlife park in Neandertal today.
