28 May 2015–28 Feb 2016
Smiling icon, spiritual superhero and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate. Who is he and how did he become Dalai Lama?
The Nobel Peace Center celebrated its 10th anniversary in June 2015, and Dalai Lama his 80th birthday in July. What was more natural than letting an exhibition about the popular Peace Prize Laureate from 1989 become part of our anniversary programme? From 28 May 2015 onwards, we’re staging an exhibition on the Dalai Lama’s incredible life. We tell the story about the day the 14th Dalai Lama was born, with his eyes open and while rainbows were travelling across the roof of his house, and about how he was appointed Dalai Lama. The Nobel Peace Center has been entrusted with pictures from the Dalai Lama’s childhood, and they are shown together with illustrations created by the design company Norwegian Vegetables.
The exhibition is shown in one of The Nobel Peace Center’s smaller exhibitions rooms, and will occasionally be closed on weekdays, because the room is used for educational purposes.
