The exhibition “Bali – Welcome to Paradise” shows several perspectives on this touristic Indonesian island: Next to the artefacts from Balinese artists, the stunning nature and culture of Bali, it also shows the other side of tourism; the pressure on this paradise. You can meet locals that tell their personal stories. Until 26 May 2019
