“The limitations of the earth’s surface have been made vividly clear to mankind ever since the first photographs taken from space. This realisation has led to a different understanding of our interaction with land and with the landscape.
Today we live in the Anthropocene, that period of the earth’s existence in which mankind is the determining force. The resource of landscape was once considered infinite, but our view has now shifted to an awareness of its finite nature.
Building on a development in landscape pictures from the late-1960s, the exhibition develops as a historical overview of landscape as usable land in photography and film.” (Universalmuseum Joanneu)
