PALE BLUE DOT ist Titel unserer diesjährigen Klassenausstellung. Gleichzeitig ist es der Name eines Fotos der Erde, das von der Raumsonde Voyager1 aus einer Entfernung von 6 Milliarden Kilometern aufgenommen wurde – die größte Distanz, aus der jemals ein Foto aufgenommen wurde.

Due to pandemic reasons we are not allowed to exhibit our work in the building of the academy this year. As you know it’s all about distancing these days… However, art can not exist in digital space only, we need physical and sensual encounters to experience art properly.
We are very happy to have conquered a space where we responsibly present our work to you following current hygienical standards. And as the last months were quite challenging for academy students and working in class was mostly impossible – we hope you support our approach, spread the word and step in for a quick visit or chat.
PALE BLUE DOT is the title of our exhibition. It is also the title of the last photograph of planet Earth taken by the voyager1 space probe in 1990 from a record distance of about 6 billion km, which is – until today – the most distant image ever taken of our planet.
„We succeeded in taking that picture [from deep space], and, if you look at it, you see a dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever lived, lived out their lives. The aggregate of all our joys and sufferings, thousands of confident religions, ideologies and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilizations, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every hopeful child, every mother and father, every inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every superstar, every supreme leader, every saint and sinner in the history of our species, lived there on a mote of dust, suspended in a sunbeam.“ Carl Sagan
