A Trip to the Moon is an anthology, with contributions from writers and artist, who investigate the century-long love affair between art and film. Today moving image is an inevitable part of our visual culture, available to everyone. One could say that we have now reached the stage after film, a shift in technologies as decisive as the invention of film itself. A sad consequence of the invention of new technologies is that other techniques are assigned to the graveyard. How those shifts, those births and deaths in the history of the moving image, influence and change art is the core in this book and the ongoing eponymous exhibition at Bonniers Konsthall.
A Trip to the Moon is the fifth in a series of anthologies where Bonniers Konsthall and Albert Bonnier’s Publishers investigate contemporary art’s relationship with other art forms. Previous books in the series are Anachronisms, Life Forms, Scene Shifts and Translatability.
