Representation and Dialogue

What do we have in common with others? How do different cultures interpret the world in which we live? In this activity, students will explore the inspiring treasure trove of narratives and depictions contained within the Museum’s Wing for the Arts of One World in order to gain a deeper understanding of fundamental human needs. In so doing, they will discover the commonalities among different realities.
