WestLicht explores the infinite expanses of space. Featuring 150 spectacular photographs, the exhibition gives a unique overview of the history of space photography: from early 19th century black-and-white images of passing comets to the first photograph of Earth before the black-velvet background of the universe, all the way to the colour-drenched images delivered by modern high-resolution telescopes from the depths of our galaxy.

In unheard-of clarity, Zero Gravity. The History of Space Photography (Völlig losgelöst. Die Geschichte der Weltraumfotografie) shows the mighty Saturn and its rings; the spacecraft “Galileo” and “Voyager 2” were able to transmit sensational images of Jupiter, the largest planet of our solar system, back to Earth; and of course every visitor may search for extraterrestrial life in the numerous images of the red planet Mars…

Curated by Jay Belloli for California/International Arts Foundation, Los Angeles, California
