The Art of Flying Haus der Kulturen der Welt Berlin

Sounds like a great exhibit; hope it comes to the States.

"This spring, the Haus der Kulturen der Welt is devoting a big exhibition to humankind's greatest desire: the dream of flying. The exhibition Der Traum vom Fliegen - The Art of Flying connects knowledge from technology, biology and science history with culture historical, sociological, and ethnological findings. The curators, Thomas Hauschild and Britta N. Heinrich propose the following thesis: "All human beings possess basic mental and corporal faculties, from the dream of flight to the physical conditions required for its fulfilment." "
