In 'Imagination of the universe', man's fascination with the immeasurable universe is central. Your group will discover that this fascination for the universe also inspires contemporary artists in Richard Long's solo exhibition. This British artist is inspired by nature.
‘Imagining the universe’ takes as its starting point man's fascination with the cosmos and how this is reflected in the visual arts and philosophy up to the 19th century. In this guided tour, you will consider man's fascination with the universe and the many questions this theme has raised over the centuries. The selected masterpieces from national and international collections then show how, across time, space and cultures, broad answers to various, fundamental questions about the origin of man have been conceived, expressed, represented, embraced and rejected.
Following on from 'Imagining the universe', you can also visit the solo exhibition by Richard Long. This British artist is inspired by nature. In his work, he rearranges natural materials such as stones and wood into archetypes that refer to the cosmos and the universe.
