The exhibition features pictures of the moon from various epochs. Sometimes they present the moon as the source of light in a nocturnal landscape, sometimes it is allegorical in multiple ways, and sometimes it becomes a sort of anthropomorphic vehicle for conveying own states of mind. Contrary to the sun, the moon represents the night, darkness, things that can’t be explained by rational means, the horrifying, the miraculous, feminine and even healing powers. Among the artists whose works will be on show are Sebald Beham, Balthasar Anton Dunker, Franz Niklaus König, Ernst Kreidolf, Paul Klee, Nell Walden, Meret Oppenheim, Claude Sandoz to name just a few.
