The Moody’s Brown Foundation Gallery will present Nature & Politics (through May 29, 2017), featuring photographs by Thomas Struth of scientific research and manufactured landscapes. The photographs bear witness to very specialized imaginations: whether it is the technological developments that made space travel possible, experiments in plasma physics or industrial facilities such as offshore oil rigs or blast furnaces — all owe their existence to the ideas and designs of experts. The artist will be present for a panel discussion during the Moody’s opening weekend, when the institution will inaugurate interdisciplinary conversations about technology and research — important and timely topics of global significance — and how our experience of them shapes our perceptions of the world. The presentation is based on an exhibition that was co-organized by the Museum Folkwang in Essen, Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin and the High Museum in Atlanta.
