Taking Flight to a World Beyond
Attempting to fly across the river Danube on 31 May 1811, Albrecht Ludwig Berblinger crashes his hang-glider, much to the amusement of his audience, including the duke and princes. Today, we know that he was a visionary.
The exhibition celebrating the 250th birthday of Albrecht Ludwig Berblinger presents a plethora of ideas along the thin line between science and imagination. It touches upon taking flight in a shoe as well as teleportation. It also proves that the first human to drill a hole straight down from the minster square will come back out in the Flowerpot Bay of Pitt Island. This tunnel will be 12,742 kilometres and flying from one end to the other will take 38 minutes.
Numerous artist and scientist from all around the world have made their contribution to this exhibition.
