Museum der Moderne (Salzburg, Austria) shows 12 works July 20th to Nov 3rd 2019

Exhibit on occasion of the 50th anniversary of the moon landing:

Seeing the Earth from space created unprecedented awareness of the fragility of our existence; the blue planet itself became an emblem of life and its vulnerability.

The exhibition undertakes an excursion into art history, gathering artists’ renditions and interpretations of the moon since the days of Galileo Galilei and the invention of the first telescope. Looking back on several centuries of human fascination with the moon, with an emphasis on the twentieth century and the present, it includes copperplate prints and paintings as well as photographs, video art, and multimedia installations.

Panorama of 110 works

The exhibition will be up until March 10, 2019

“Dioramas, habitats and simulated environments surface throughout this show, with biospheres, specimens, and cosmologies converging to depict at once a fragile world in disarray and the complexity of coexistence and worldmaking. For example, artist and journalist Ingo Günther's Worldprocessor (1988–ongoing), is an atlas of illuminated globes that map data across coloured spheres such as health statistics, birth rates, military expenditure, and drug routes. This constellation of luminous globes forecasts and extrapolates data onto spherical readymades, strung up in a darkened room like floating orbs.

“Strongly visual, Worldprocessor is conceptual, scientific, and analytical, alluding to structures formed between humans and nature, which is the backbone of the exhibition. The curatorial statement articulates an intention to 'explore, illustrate and investigate the different modes of connectivity and reciprocal dependency that keep a system alive'.”

«Apocalypse – End Without End»

5-year EXHIBITION  10.11.2017 – 10.11.2022

The end of the world is a human invention, age-old yet more relevant than ever. Natural disasters and man-made catastrophes such as war and environmental destruction inspire both fear and the need to make sense of events. The exhibition brings together apocalypse-related images, objects and narratives from science and art.
