FAME explored the ambivalent soul of Los Angeles. One part dream machine and another part Vanity Fair, Los Angeles is home to dislocated whimsy and constructed memory. It is also the headquarter of the Wende Museum, which has the most interesting archives of artifacts from the almost forgotten Cold-War. By looking closer at the unusual juxtaposition of artworks and artifacts from different eras and geographies, ESMoA explored the multifarious foundations of what might make things famous and the possible connections between them.
