Un monde réel

52 €

Presented at the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain on the eve of the new millennium, the exhibition Un monde réel revisited the major themes of science fiction and space conquest, offering food for thought on imagination and its relationship to reality in the late twentieth century.
The exhibition catalog brings together works, objects, and texts on the theme of the universe with contributions from physicists, painters, writers, art historians, filmmakers, and urban planners: Paul Virilio, Jean-Louis Schefer, Moebius, Anne Diatkine... Each calls upon childhood imagination and reality, thereby combining two essential dimensions—man and play—through which we invent the world and make it our own.
