Mysterious cave paintings and Stone Age sculptures - a pictorial arc to the earliest testimonies of artistic expression.
The beginnings of cultural activity lie in the dark - but with modern methods, archaeology has made an enormous leap. In contact with the overpowering forces of nature, our ancestors as hunters and gatherers sought to master their experiences with the help of art. Fascinatingly powerful cave paintings and statuettes bear witness to the paramount role of animals as a source of life and danger. The lecture begins with Ice Age art and leads up to the beginning of the Bronze Age with the first villages and towns in Mesopotamia. How do artistic grave goods reflect this enormous social step?
