permanent Exhibition Intro

Technological advances and photography allowed people to “see” what had until then been unimaginable.

The first photographs and the documentation of the view “from above” introduced a new way of viewing the mountains. Until then, people had only looked at mountains from below and judged them to be “holy, untouchable”, or “for the most part economically useless”. The photographs “from above” suddenly let them see things from a different angle. The rapid development of photography and photographic technology generated new and constantly evolving ways of looking at the mountains, and these, in turn, created new information, new possibilities of applicability, and new possibilities of use. And people discovered how the mountain could be “utilized”, could become useable, exploitable, useful.
