"Bringing the World Into the World"
© Markus Tretter 2010
Harun Farocki, Deep Play, 2007
The Panorama of the City of New York—surely the most famous and popular attraction at the Queens Museum—serves as the jumping-off point for this multigenerational group show, which considers the idea of representing the world (and beyond) through dioramas, scale models and other methods. Some of the works include Harun Farocki's 12-channel video installation, replaying raw footage from the 2006 World Cup, with each screen displaying a different vantage point; and Chris Burden's rendition of the solar system, with the Sun hung directly over the Panorama, and Pluto set a mile from the museum, inside a local Italian eatery.
