Exhibition Catalogue. Collective work coordinated by Angela Lampe
Published : May 2013

Views from above considers how an elevated perspective, from the first aerial photographs of the mid-nineteenth century to the satellite images, has transformed artists' perception of the world.
The exhibition catalogue unfolds in eight themed sections – displacement, planimetrics, extension, detachment, domination, topography, urbanisation, supervision – that travel through the modern era, marked by two world wars. Innovative scenography takes visitors through time as well as space: little by little, the "view from above" rises from balcony level to a satellite.

The catalogue includes contributions from outstanding specialists as Christoph Asendorf , Oliver Botar, Teresa Castro, Alexandra Chatiskikh, Georges Didi-Hubermann, Thierry Gervais, Angela Lampe, Aurélien Lemonier, Olivier Lugon, Pascal Rousseau, Gilles Tiberghien, Marek Wieczorek…
