On occasion of the 50th anniversary of the first Moon landing, Kunsthaus Zürich presents a journey through the history of artists’ engagement with the Moon, from the Romantic era to the present day.

With around 200 works from Dahl and Munch to Warhol and Fleury, divided into thematic sections, the exhibition Fly me to the Moon focuses on topics such as lunar topography, moonlit night and the Moon’s shadow, ailments associated with the Moon, zero gravity and the Moon as mass media phenomenon.
