The Moon: From Inner Worlds to Outer SpaceThe Moon: From Inner Worlds to Outer Space

Published by Louisiana Museum of Modern Art.
Edited by Lærke Rydal Jørgensen, Marie Laurberg. Foreword by Poul Erik Tøjner. Text by Marie Laurberg, Anja C. Andersen, Stephen Petersen, E.C. Krupp.

Myths of the moon in the arts and sciences, 50 years after the first manned landing

The moon has long furnished humankind with an artistic icon, an image of longing and object of scientific inquiry. Encompassing art, film, literature, architecture, design, natural history and historical objects, and published on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the first manned landing (July 20, 1969), The Moon surveys the iconography of the moon, from Romantic landscape paintings to space-age art. It takes the 1969 landing as a thematic fulcrum and a culmination of the deep-rooted cultural conceptions invested in the space race in the 1960s, from David Bowie to Disney.

The book also accounts for the science of the moon throughout the ages, from Galileo to NASA, addressing the many lunar myths that have existed throughout time. Also explored here is moonlight, an important theme in the Romantic nocturnal landscapes of Caspar David Friedrich, J.C. Dahl and Carl Julius von Leypold. Another powerful artistic genealogy is associated with science fiction, a genre that has on occasion influenced space programs: Jules Verne's From the Earth to the Moon (1865), for instance, famously inspired NASA's Apollo programs. Film pioneers such as Georges Méliès and Fritz Lang created cinematic lunar voyages, and in the 1930s, surrealist artists such as Joseph Cornell, Salvador Dalí and Max Ernst explored the moonlit landscape as psychological allegory. Later, during the Cold War, superpowers on both sides of the Iron Curtain worked closely with artists to orchestrate and interpret the space race: Robert Rauschenberg, for example, was one of eight artists invited by NASA to witness Apollo 11, while artists in the Soviet Union played a central role in building the cult of the cosmonaut.

The Moon looks at all these lunar themes and myths, in a thrilling and inspirational gathering for anyone who has felt the moon's pull on their imagination.

Barbara Yoshida: Moon ViewingBarbara Yoshida: Moon Viewing

Megaliths by Moonlight

Published by Marquand Books.
Text by Lucy Lippard. Foreword Linda Connor.

Megalithic monuments can be found across many countries, and their configuration varies widely. Moon Viewing: Megaliths by Moonlight surveys the geographical distribution of these stones, from Sweden in the north to West Africa in the south and Armenia in the east. The book is based on Barbara Yoshida’s ten years of travel and research and uses night photography to emphasize the relationship of megalithic stones to stars and planets. Research has shown that some of the stones were purposely aligned with the appearance of stars or planets at certain times of the year. In Yoshida’s night photographs, stars and planets are evidenced as "star trails"--white streaks in the sky that show how much the earth moved during shooting. Augmenting the photographs are an essay by renowned art critic Lucy Lippard and a foreword by acclaimed photographer Linda Connor.

The CometThe Comet

The Journey of Rosetta

Published by Editions Xavier Barral.
Introduction by Jean-Pierre Bibring. Text by Hanss Zischler.

A gorgeously printed portrait of a comet
In 2004, following more than ten years of research, the European Space Agency decided to send the Rosetta probe to study the 67P comet Churyumov Gerasimenko, nicknamed “Tchoury.” After a ten-year voyage and hundreds of millions of miles crossed through space, the probe entered the comet’s orbit and stayed there for 18 months—a first in the history of space conquest. Its lander, Philae, a kind of miniature science laboratory, landed directly on Tchoury’s surface to sample matter for analysis. The mission: to find some answers to the questions of the origins of the solar system and the emergence of life on Earth.
Among the important data collected by the Rosetta probe were scores of incredible new photographs of the comet—presented here in an extraordinary book, a sequel of sorts to 2013’s This Is Mars. The Comet is structured around the various phases of the probe’s journey: leaving Earth, breaching its atmosphere and watching its lights disappear; skirting the Moon and coming close to Mars; and finally losing itself in the starry void of the cosmos and approaching the comet.
Thanks to highly developed optical technology, each of these encounters yielded captivating images of the various planets in incredibly high definition; their textures and surfaces appear on the paper in vivid detail. In addition to the staggering collection of images, The Comet includes a text by Jean-Pierre Bilbring, an astrophysicist involved with the Rosetta project, reflecting on the objectives of this mission and the accomplishment of such a technological feat for humanity. The result of an interstellar voyage, this book is a photographic dream that transports the reader into space aboard the Rosetta probe.

Barbara Bosworth: The HeavensBarbara Bosworth: The Heavens

Published by Radius Books.
Text by Margot Anne Kelley.

A follow-up to her successful 2015 book The Meadow, this project focuses on Boston-based photographer Barbara Bosworth's (born 1953) images of the moon, sun and sky. Made over the past several years with an 8x10 camera, the star images are hour-long exposures with the camera mounted on a clock drive so that the stars are rendered as dots instead of streaks. The sun and moon images are made with a telescope attached to Bosworth's camera.

Speaking of her inspiration for these series, Bosworth writes: "Every clear night of the summer my father would go out for a walk to look at the night sky. Many nights I would join him. We knew the North Star, and the Big Bear, but the rest became our own. At times we stood still for an hour or more to watch for shooting stars. We had no agenda. It was all about amazement at a sky full of stars. With this sense of wonder, I began making photographs of the Heavens. In these days of the Hubble Telescope and its spectacular imagery from deep space, I wanted a reminder of the mystery of our own night sky."

The book also includes facsimile editions of three artist's books that Bosworth has made as a nod to Galileo's 17th-century publications in which he first observed the skies through a telescope.

Space ColoniesSpace Colonies

A Galactic Freeman’s Journal

Published by Spector Books.
By Fabian Reimann.

A visionary assemblage of historical, present-day and speculative material on space colonies, inspired by the culture of the Whole Earth Catalog

At the beginning of the 1970s, American physicist Gerard K. O’Neill developed the first ideas for colonizing space. Shortly thereafter, Stewart Brand, cyber-communard and editor of the Whole Earth Catalog, took up these ideas and published the book Space Colonies in 1977. Space Colonies, an edition of Brand’s CoEvolution Quarterly, funded by the proceeds of the Whole Earth Catalog, took up the question of whether space might be colonized by the year 2000.

Artist Fabian Reimann takes up Brand and O’Neill’s particular strain of techno-utopianism in Space Colonies: A Galactic Freeman’s Journal. In his photo-essay Reimann assembles historical, present-day and speculative material, combining these with fictional and factual stories to create a composite of different images of the world. With global ecological disaster an even more pressing issue than it was in 1977, and the colonization of space still touted by some as a last-ditch resort, Reimann looks back at the dreams and nightmares of the 1970s with a sophisticated visual humor.

Fabian Reimann (born 1975) is an artist working in Leipzig and, since 2004, the editor of the “ego-zine” Freeman’s Journal. His Another Earth Catalog, which refers back to Stewart Brand’s Whole Earth Catalog, was published by Spector Books in 2012. Reimann works with sculpture, photography, collage, painting and text in extended research projects that blend history and science, and fact and fiction.

Planetary EchoesPlanetary Echoes

Exploring the Implications of Human Settlement in Outer Space

Published by Spector Books.
Edited with text by Lukas Feireiss, Michael Najjar. Text by Buzz Aldrin, Anousheh Ansari, Nelly Ben Hayoun, Thore Bjørnvig, Richard Branson, Pierre Cox, Xavier De Kestelier, Norman Foster, Alexander Geppert, Ulrich Köhler, Michael López-Alegría, Greg Lynn, Fabian Reimann, Tim Smit, Christiane Stahl, Sethu Vijayakumar, Andy Weir, Frank White, Peter Weibel.

We now have the technology to reach nearby planets. Even though many long-term technical issues still need to be resolved to create the conditions for a permanent, self-sustaining human life on another planet, imagining humans as a multiplanetary species is no longer merely the stuff of science fiction. Against this backdrop, Planetary Echoes considers the place of this dream of human life on other planets in the arts, literature and sciences at the beginning of the 21st century.

In this volume, a broad, interdisciplinary list of contributors (scientists, astronauts, designers, philanthropists, inventors, artists and curators) weighs in on the imaginable possibilities of space settlement. The list of contributors ranges from Buzz Aldrin to Richard Branson to Norman Foster, with many more perspectives on offer—a list eclectic enough to match the eccentricity of the human dream of colonizing outer space.

Planetary Echoes aims to inspire readers to participate in the collective dream of space exploration through offering a deeper insight into what is already possible today. The deep-seated desire to explore—the vision of calling more than one planet our home—is paired here with the most urgent existential question of the 21st century: saving the Earth's future.

Space Is The PlaceSpace Is The Place

Published by Independent Curators International (ICI).
Foreword by Judith Richards, Linda Shearer. Text by Alex Baker, Toby Kamps, Svetlana Boym.

This catalogue for the traveling exhibition Space Is the Place (whose title refers to a movie about the super-experimental and influential jazz musician, Sun Ra) takes an inspired look at the theme of space exploration. Encompassing the concept of infinite potential, as well as historical outer-space successes and failures, it features installations, paintings, works on paper, and sound and video works made during the past 15 years by Laurie Anderson, Nina Katchadourian, Oleg Kulik, Julian LaVerdiere, Aleksandra Mir and Damian Ortega, among others, and investigates global attitudes from the time the Soviets launched Sputnik nearly 50 years ago to the era of the explosion of the Columbia space shuttle in 2003. While the featured artworks are united by the theme of outer space, the open-ended parameters of the subject also invite consideration of the technological, environmental and sociopolitical forces affecting life on earth today.
