As the players in the 21st century race for the Moon line up—the USA, China, India and Russia jostling with private corporations interested in exploiting the Moon’s resources—a group of artists are declaring a Republic of the Moon: a ‘micronation’ for alternative visions of lunar life.
Republic of the Moon challenges utilitarian plans for lunar mines and military bases with artists’ imaginings and interventions. Combining beguiling fantasies, personal encounters, and playful appropriations of space habitats and scientific technologies, it reclaims the Moon for artists, idealists and dreamers.
