EXTRACTIVISM IN OUTER SPACE
THE WIDER UNCANNY SPACE PROJECT
The exhibition is also linked to an academic research project that is led by Saskia Vermeylen and funded by Leverhulme Trust which seeks to write a new space law manifesto based on a critical interrogation of the utopian visions of space law, utopian theories and science fiction literature.
While we understand that naming the moon seems like a feeble act against such great powers, we know that naming things on maps has been a powerful tool used in colonialism to claim power and resources– but we also know that we can re-claim these maps, give them new names, names that carry with them stories and truths that their own secret strength to challenge those who have power.
Join the project by claiming your right to have a say on what happens to our beloved moon, and other sister worlds.
