In 2015, the city of Antwerp will host ‘The International Conference on the History of Cartography’. This prompted the Museum aan de Stroom (MAS) to organize an international exhibition on world views.
‘The world mirrored. World maps from the Middle Ages to the present’ tells the history of the Western world view through unique maps and globes, from the Middle Ages to the present. It can be seen how drastically this image has changed over the centuries. The exhibition gets extra color: some contemporary artists have added their image to the world.
