Fly Me to the Moon: 1969 – 2019
50 Jahre Mondlandung der Apollo 11
The moon landing of the US-American Apollo 11 space capsule altered our relationship to space and our environment. The view of Earth from space gave rise to a new awareness of the fragility of our planet and the threats posed by human's existential interventions.
This discourse, though more topical than ever, is not the only thematic focus; on the contrary, the exhibition and the richly illustrated catalog seek to address this enduring mystery that continues to fascinate all cultures of the world, from the 19th century to the present.
The journey through the history of artistic exploration of the moon includes topics such as celestial cartography, lunar topography, ailments associated with the moon, and more!
