 Art in Outer Space (1969)
In 1969, man set foot on the Moon – time to reflect on the role of art in the most mediatized event of modern times. The lecture, which opens the Spring Term of the Bibliotheca Hertziana’s academic program, addresses the question of the meaning of art in outer space and discusses works from Andy Warhol to Damien Hirst that have actually left the Earth.

Tristan Weddigen is director at the Bibliotheca Hertziana – Max Planck Institute for Art History and professor at the University of Zurich. His department focuses on contemporary Italian art, its global entanglements, materiality and mediality, the history of art history and digital visual studies.
