Visual narratives: a history of art at CERN

Camilla Mork Rostvik

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article examines the history of art inspired by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in the twentieth and 21st centuries. The article argues that artists can show us radically different narratives about this space than those that are told by the mainstream media, by scientists and by CERN’s own public relations structure.
