Summary
The European Enlightenment is famed as an epoch of literature and philosophy, an epoch of writing. Its significance for the fine arts, however, has often been overlooked, which is unfair, for in art the Enlightenment found a force that is able to change our world by creating new ones. The exhibition 'On the Plurality of Worlds' revolves around this revolutionary idea, inspired by the speculations of Enlightenment thinkers that our cosmos is merely one of many universes. The exhibition derives its name from the title of a book that fuelled the imaginations of Enlightenment thinkers more than any other: Bernard Le Bovier de Fontenelle's Conversations on the Plurality of Worlds, published in 1686. The Kulturforum is an ideal place to present this art historical panorama, where so many vital collections converge on each other.0Exhibition: Kulturforum, Berlin, Germany (10.5.-5.8.2012).
