    An exclusive look into the creative world of one of the great futurists of our time

    Opening Thursday, November 14, 2019, 7 pm

    Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Tron, Blade Runner or Aliens, Mission to Mars and Elysium:
    For legendary science fiction films Syd Mead created trend-setting and breathtaking worlds. He developed entire cities and mobility concepts with flying cars, autonomous vehicles,
    space ships.

    Syd Meads picture worlds are always characterized by functionality and mostly a positive idea of the future. But for the dystopian cult film Blade Runner, Syd Mead created the vision of a bold and apocalyptic city in which huge skyscrapers dominate the skyline. Now, in November 2019, fiction overlaps with the present, for the 1982 film is set in Los Angeles 2019.

    The idea for Germany's first solo exhibition of works by Syd Mead was developed by Markus Penell, O&O Baukunst. Herewith he opens up the opportunity to experience inspiring concepts of visionary urban development beyond architectural means.

    Filmmaker Boris Hars-Tschachotin, the curator of this exhibition, worked out compilating a particular selection of iconic drawings and gouaches by Syd Mead at O&O Depot. A total of 30 originals with a focus on urban spaces, including motifs for Blade Runner, offer an insight into the creative world of the visionary. In a brand new short documentary, Syd Mead talks about his work, inspiration and career.
