Tomás Saraceno – in orbit
June 22, 2013 - September 07, 2014
The Argentinian artist Tomás Saraceno is currently planning an enormous installation, entitled in orbit, for the cupola level of the K21. At a height of more than 20 meters above the museum's piazza, he will suspend a construction of virtually transparent steel wires, through which visitors (at least those without vertigo) will be invited to crawl or climb.
