Housed in a pioneering new building next to the railway station, the Stapferhaus Lenzburg hosts an exciting range of exhibitions and creates a platform for people to engage with the critical questions of our times. Workshops, events and publications provide opportunities for a range of target groups to explore themes in greater depth.
The Stapferhaus throws the spotlight on some of the biggest questions of our times and takes a look at the issues shaping our lives, our country and our world. The building located next to Lenzburg railway station offers visitors an opportunity to experience the issues facing us today through a range of thought-provoking exhibitions and events. Accompanying events, workshops and courses provide a platform for discussion. The museum’s bistro provides a space to rest and relax. This place of dialogue, inspiration and interactive discovery is open to all: young and old, experts and novices, proponents and opponents. Those who see opportunities in this age of social change and those who fear it. Anyone seeking a better understanding of our times and themselves too.
The current exhibition at the Stapferhaus is entitled “FAKE. The Whole Truth” and runs from 28 October 2018 to 28 June 2020:
Fake news, fake profiles and fake products. Corporations that cheat, athletes who take drugs, politicians who shy away from the truth: never before have we been surrounded by so much dishonesty. And we’re right in the thick of it, asking ourselves: What’s genuine? What’s true? What’s a lie? Who can we trust? Who should we trust?
For the duration of the FAKE exhibition, the Stapferhaus has been turned into the Office for the Whole Truth. Visitors are invited to sound out the lies, and see whether or not the truth still has a pulse. It’s up to you to decide which lies are important, which are necessary, and which could even be fatal.
The FAKE exhibition is in German, French and English. Free guided tours of the exhibition are held each Sunday at 11 a.m.
