Landscape requires perspective. The view from space of a moving, finite world changed our perception of it permanently: landscape, as a tamed territory, became a living material and a fought-over resource. Today, more than ever, it is a place of reflection on contexts and responsibilities – and not least of all an autonomous, unfathomable dimension. The exhibition shows pioneering works from the 1960s onwards, which reflect a changing awareness of landscape in the Anthropocene era. Film plays a vital role in this as the catalyst for the perception of a possible reality of landscape.
