This catalogue documents two exhibitions titled, Imaging the Universe at M Leuven and To the Edge of Time, at University Library KU Leuven. Publisher's description: How did the Universe begin? Will it ever end? The cosmos and Man’s place in it have fascinated humans for thousands of years. These mind-bending cosmic questions keep scientists awake at night, but also fuel the imagination and fantasy of artists. This unique book combines the insights of scientists and visual artists, offering a magnificent overview of the visualization of the Universe from the Neolithic to the present. In addition, dozens of stunning modern and contemporary artworks engage in a dialog with the Big Bang theory in its various forms. Professor Georges Lemaître formulated his revolutionary theory about the origin of the Universe in 1931 at the University of Leuven. In 2021, our ideas about this Big Bang and the cosmos as a whole are still evolving. Our astonishment and desire to visualize what we are unable to comprehend fully, however, remain unchanged. With enlightening contributions from Barbara Baert, Abdelkader Benali, Thomas Hertog, Hannah Redler Hawes, Jan Van der Stock, Annelies Vogels, and others.
