The exhibition Fragile Water brings attention to our use of water. Glass as a fragile material symbolises the fragility of the global freshwater resources. Fragile Water can be seen in Baggage Claim Hall 2B where passengers arriving from Asia, America and non-Schengen countries collect their baggage. The exhibition is open from 23 January 2019 until the end of year.
