Weihburggasse 26
1010 Vienna
Exhibition
Online since 24 September 2014

In mathematics, a rotation designates a rigid body movement by keeping a point fixed. Departing from this definition, along with Ernst Machs' principles on mechanics, a series of questions could be posed to understand our relationship with the spaces that we settle, see, and hear about, or even with the ones that we could never experience: What does it mean to be fixated to a point?

Helmhaus Zurich

Limmatquai 31
8001 Zurich
Exhibition
