Liam Gillick – who normally gets attention rather with his paintings, sculptures and conceptual works – has created the audioguide for visitors to help them navigate through the various themes: from celebrated and fallen heroes, moonlight and the staging of space travel to media hype – the buzz that greeted Neil Armstrong’s one small step as it morphed into a giant leap for mankind.
In addition to the regular guided tours and workshops, ‘Fly me to the Moon’ is accompanied by an exciting series of fringe events – with participants including Elisabeth Bronfen (Professor of English and American Studies, University of Zurich), Wolf D. Prix (Coop Himmelb(l)au), and Guido Schwarz (Swiss Space Museum).
The exhibition is a collaboration with the German Aerospace Center. After Zurich, ‘Fly me to the Moon’ will be shown at the Museum der Moderne in Salzburg.
