Scientific images reveal things usually hidden to the human eye. Does scientific photography just serve as a visual aid to the researcher, or is it possible that it actually plays a much larger role? Since the invention of photography, art and science have embraced the medium and shared a journey of exploration and discovery. The exhibition catalog CrossOver tracks these two intersecting worlds, beginning with the first microscopic images by A.E. Durham and ending with Thomas Ruff s appropriated images of Mars. Presented is a historical and contemporary treasure trove of artists and scientific photographers, including Anna Atkins, Auguste-Adolphe Bertsch, Harold Edgerton, Léon Foucault, Irène Joliot-Curie, Markus Krottendorfer, Albert Londe, Aïm Deu elle Lu ski, Maschinensehen (Henning Arnecke, Lisa Bergmann, Christoph Oeschger, Elke Reinhuber), Melanie Matthieu, Aurélie Pétrel, Rodolphe Archibald Reiss, Hannes Rickli, Thomas Ruff, Adrian Sauer, Laurent Schmid, Sarah Schönfeld and Simon Starling. Essays from Michel Frizot, Christoph Hoffmann and Kelley Wilder.
