The National Institute for Mathematical Sciences (NIMS) presents a very special IMAGINARY exhibition in collaboration with the Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach (MFO). It will feature the best of all IMAGINARY modules of the last years including new software, images, films and sculptures.

IMAGINARY는 2008년 독일 수학의 해를 기념하여 시작된 수학과의 소통을 기반으로 한 이동 전시회입니다.
IMAGINARY is an interactive mathematics exhibition and open platform for mathematical exhibits. It was originally developed for the Year of Mathematics 2008 in Germany and has grown into an international phenomenon with more than 120 exhibitions in 25 countries, attracting over 1 million visitors. Its intention is to display visualizations, interactive installations, virtual realities, 3D objects and their theoretical background in a variety of mathematical fields, as for example algebraic geometry, differential geometry, crystallography, and differential equations connected to the mathematics of our planet earth.

The exhibition sets out to evoke interest and curiosity in mathematics and to learn about astonishing applications. Visitors are encouraged to interact with the exhibits and create their own mathematical artwork or simulations using special software. Demonstrators are available to give helpful insights into the mathematics behind the modules shown. This special exhibition titled NIMS-IMAGINARY will feature 6 interactive touch screen panels, a mathematical image gallery and 3d sculptures.


Guided tour is offered upon appointment for a group or a single person for free. Entrance is also completely free!


The exhibition is accessible weekdays from 9:00AM to 6:00PM. Participants for a conference held at NIMS are encouraged to appreciate exhibits any time during the events.
