A traveling exhibition in the Netherlands from June 2022 until July 2023, organized by the Dutch Platform for Mathematics, in collaboration with Dutch universities and supported by partner organizations.
This new IMAGINARY exhibition in The Netherlands is organized by the Dutch Platform for Mathematics, in collaboration with Dutch universities and supported by partner organisations. The exhibition runs simultaneously in Flanders, where the Flanders Platform for Mathematics is the driving force.
From June 2022 and throughout the school year 2022-2023 “IMAGINARY: beauty and power of mathematics” can be visited and experienced in 8 cities in the Netherlands. From May 8 to May 26, the interactive math exhibition Imaginary will be hosted at MACA, Moving Arts Center Amsterdam (NDSM wharf).
There will be free guided tours for school classes and other interested parties at each location.
The exhibition includes numerous top-quality posters, a series of 3D objects, puzzle setups and several interactive apps that visitors can engage with via large touchscreens. Mathematics: surprisingly diverse, appealingly beautiful and stunning applications!
Moreover, to celebrate the exhibition, the Universiteit van Amsterdam and the Vrije Universiteit are organizing a series of special events (no registration needed):
