The great bazaar of evolution


The exhibition The Grand Bazaar of Evolution tells the long story of life on Earth, its significant events, its wonders, its surprises, and its findings, from the appearance of the first living things in water 3.5 billion years ago to the current threat of biodiversity loss. It also shows how simple mechanisms such as selection, chance, symbiosis and the intertwining of species have been able to produce the astonishing diversity of living things. With a bias: that we should revolutionize our view of the biodiversity that surrounds us and of which we form part.
