Hello

Thank you, this is clear and helpful.
I can distinguish the Exhibition as an Activity vs. the set of items being
exhibited.
The set of items being exhibited is not an E78_Collection.
The set of items can be described as a Physical Man-Made Object, with
sub-components, and part additions and removals.

Thanks
Thomas
