Come to the New Museum for one of the last opportunities to see “Ostalgia,” a landmark exhibition that brings together the work of more than fifty artists from twenty countries across Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Republics. Explore the artwork of Julius Koller and Stano Filko, two Slovakian artists who wondered what it would be like to travel to outer space and live amongst within the cosmos. They created model UFOs, space masks and helmets, maps and charts, as well as advertisements for future space travel—all to help them understand the Space Race, the Cold War, and the idealized new world that technology and interstellar travel offered. After exploring the artwork of Koller and Filko, chat with some of our friendly family docents about space travel, utopias, and science fiction then create your own cosmic travel poster and other celestial ephemera.
