From Jules Verne and Jonathan Swift to Star Wars and Ex Machina.
The OCC joins forces once again with London's Barbican Centre in an exhibition that spotlights the long-standing influence of science fiction on the full range of contemporary culture. A genre that once addressed a small and specialized audience is now everywhere we look thanks to its impact on art, design, film and literature.
Travel through iconic books and comics, movies and music in an exhibition that makes the unknown seem highly familiar...
