With the “Heroes of Peace” installation, Swarovski Kristallwelten (Swarovski Crystal Worlds) is dedicating one of its Chambers of Wonder to the theme of peace, honoring the vision of the artist and curator André Heller. The installation invites visitors to pause for a moment, to think about life, and how each of us can make our own contribution to peace.
Innovative projection technology makes it possible for visitors to see and encounter life-sized holograms of individuals who have won the Nobel Peace Prize, or who have dedicated their lives to the vital theme of peace. The “Heroes of Peace” speak to visitors, offer inspiration, and share the wisdom they have learned from their lives. “Heroes of Peace” presents Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Albert Einstein, Rigoberta Menchú, Bertha von Suttner, Pablo Picasso, Nelson Mandela, John Lennon, Yoko Ono, and many others.
