Glass: Engine of Progress

For the images in the ‘Glass: Engine of Progress’ exhibition we delved into a diverse group of international archives. Ranging from the corporate Carl Zeiss Archive, to the International Institute of Social History and from the Vatican Archives to the impressive Science and Society Picture Library as well as the National Glasmuseum Leerdam among others.

Next to these ‘institutional’ sources we have a profound interest in images produced and collected outside of professional systems. This resulted in us being able to show a couple of images by an employee of the Caltech optical shop and the research work done on the classified Keyhole satellites by ‘amateur’ astronomers.
