At a time when blank spots have by and large disappeared from maps, “wilderness” has returned in art. The Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt has dedicated an extensive theme-based exhibition to this recurring fascination.

Things to Come

Science · Fiction · Film

Science fiction is booming. Huge budgets and box office receipts are testament to the rise of the genre. The infinite vastness of space, landings on other planets, encounters with aliens and technical and scientific progress are popular themes. As with the initial hype in the 1950s, the films contain many references to social themes.


This exhibition catalogue provides an overview of the genre and the reasons for its current success. It features previously unpublished images and exclusive photographs of works and stills from the international film history. Engagingly-written essays and several interviews with renowned experts complete the book and create an entertaining and reflective gateway to the science fiction genre.
