Can you imagine how was life on earth before Neil Amstrong put a foot on the moon? Probably most of the people who were watching the first astronauts landing on the satellite didn’t imagine that they would see something like that.
This event changed the perception of the future and as a consequence, films, architecture, music, and other arts were influenced by this situation. Space travels, the moon, other planets, and the universe were everywhere, and artists like Andy Warhol, Sol LeWitt, Annie Leibovitz or Robert Rauschenberg dedicated some of their works of art to this topic.
The exhibition Zero Gravity explores photographies and works of art from that time and also from nowadays. One of the highlights is Peter Kogler‘s spatial installation.
The exhibition has free admission and can be visited on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays from 11 am to 5 pm until the 20th of February. They have also a side program with lectures and panel discussions. More information on the Eres Stiftung website.
