The self-described “laboratory for the art of living” provides regular exhibitions that deal with the critical questions of our day, thereby encouraging discussions and exchange for individuals and families, as well as school classes and expert groups. By addressing each visitor at eye level, the
Stapferhaus motivates forming a position of one’s own as opposed to taking in pre-formulated answers. A gigantic Ferris wheel, placed in front of the Lenzburg Zeughaus, is part of the exhibition tour to both a different world and inside yourself; a world that puts the question first and does not necessarily provide an answer. Sibylle Lichtensteiger, head of the Stapferhaus, explains: “The general question in times of globalisation is what exactly forms an identity.”
