From the Moon: the new Triennale Milano podcast waiting for the 23rd International Exhibition
From the Moon is a podcast series created by Triennale with journalist David Plaisant which will accompany the public towards the opening of the International Exhibition, Unknown Unknowns. An Introduction to Mysteries, curated by Ersilia Vaudo.
From the Moon the Earth seems to be a serenely beautiful sphere of blues, greens and whirling white clouds. From the Moon is where we can finally step back and look at the state of our planet; from the extinction and destruction being caused by climate change to the interlinked conflict and crises that is affecting our population. This podcast will look at Planet Earth as if we are broadcasting from the Moon, the distance allowing us to make sense of the immense beauty that sometimes coexists, but that can often disappear when faced with such grave challenges.
