Plants and animals. Atlases of natural history in the age of Linnaeus
19.05.2020 - 18.10.2020
We long for the natural world and admire its diversity. Yet we rarely realise that long before the emergence of thematic television channels, several hundred years before the circulation of illustrated magazines, the world of nature had been well depicted and documented not only for the sake of knowledge but also for aesthetic pleasure. The International Cultural Centre presents the exhibition Plants and Animals. Atlases of Natural History in the Age of Linnaeus – a story of artistic and scientific fascinations with the masterworks of nature.
