    It was “the brutal and immense magic”, which Charles Baude­laire admired about the dioramas. Conceived by Louis Daguerre in the 19th century as a play­house enlivened with light effects the diorama became the glass display case par excel­lence for presenting knowl­edge in natural history museums. In a unique exhi­bi­tion orga­nized in coop­er­a­tion with the Palais de Tokyo, Paris the SCHIRN high­lights a cultural history of vision.

    The focus is firmly on the diorama, which is used to present and real­is­ti­cally stage events, stories and settings with the aid of various artistic means. From moder­nity until today the diorama has been a funda­mental source of inspi­ra­tion: an entire series of artists from the 20th and 21st centuries explore this concept of seeing in their works by ques­tioning and decon­structing the illu­sion of reality. The exhi­bi­tion will present impres­sive dioramas and works by artists such as Mark Dion, Isa Genzken, Hiroshi Sugi­moto and Jeff Wall.
