Since the discovery of Mars, the red planet has been a source of great fascination to human beings. Mars: conquest of a dream exhibition looks at the roots of this fascination and its impact on culture and science. It also reflects on the possibility of putting a man on Mars.
The exhibition will study the impact of Mars on the collective imaginary. In culture, cinema, music, literature, etc. And the evolution of the concept of the Martian as a projection of the concerns of different times and contexts. The impact of Mars on the collective imagination.
Mars appears as one of the best positioned planetary candidates to house or have housed some type of biological life. Knowing if life ever arose on Mars to perhaps disappear later is what makes Mars a unique candidate for exploration.
Mars: conquest of a dream exhibition also explores some of the hypotheses that posit that humans could well be the first interplanetary species.
For centuries, we have gazed up at the sky and looked for a representation of our beliefs in the stars, also using them to explain the phenomena that surround us. Mars has also been an object of fear and fable at one and the same time.
