Beyond the Panorama: On the Construction of Landscape

The exhibition takes a fresh look at the panorama. The heyday of the medium towards the end of the nineteenth century coincided with the first films, which staged reality in a new way using constructed landscapes. At the National Exhibition in Geneva in 1896, for example, films by the state-of-the-art Cinématographe Lumière were on view. The exhibition shows how today, beyond the panorama, the media of film, video and digital art are exploring new ways to represent landscape.
