Video Review of Republic of the Moon at the Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf (The Arts Catalyst)
Republic of the Moon
Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf
10 January – 2 February 2014
To mark the start of its 20th year, the Arts Catalyst, an organisation that puts a cultural spin on science and technology, has taken over the Bargehouse, declared it an Earth-based embassy for the Republic of the Moon, and filled it with artists and their fantastical works.
The moon has always been a popular subject for dreamers and imaginers, and what are artists if not this?
It is now more than four decades since humans first walked on the moon, but with China’s landing of Jade Rabbit in December and Google’s sponsored competition to spur private companies into landing similar vehicles by the end of 2015, talk of making our satellite the base for further research and space exploration is being renewed.
