Moon Graffiti: speculating about an alternative moon landing

"That's one small step for a man; one giant leap for mankind.' We all know the quote, the triumphant story. It seems written in stone. But Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong came within inches of tragedy when they landed Apollo 11. Moon Graffiti imagines what it might have sounded like if things had gone a little differently. Based on a contingency speech written by William Safire for Richard Nixon titled 'In the Event of Moon Disaster'.

The Truth is a series of new radio dramas produced by Jonathan Mitchell, edited by Hillary Frank and commissioned by American Public Media."

Exposition Futur Anterieur: the future of an alternative past

"Articulée autour des trois axes convergents mais néanmoins autonomes que constituent le rétrofuturisme, le steampunk et l'archéomodernisme, l'exposition a pour enjeu de faire dialoguer des productions culturelles issues du passé, qui tentaient à leur époque d'envisager ce que pourrait être le futur – c'est–à–dire approximativement notre postmodernité – avec des œuvres d'artistes actuels qui revisitent le passé et réactivent certaines visions du futur ou de la modernité générées essentiellement entre le dernier tiers du XIXe et la première moitié du XXe siècle.

Structured around the themes of retrofuturism, steampunk and archeomodernism – a concept developed by the academic, critic and curator Arnaud Pierre, the exhibition FUTUR PERFECT aims to create a dialogue between past cultural output that imagined the future, what is essentially our postmodern era – with work from contemporary artists, which in both form and substances refer to the pas [sic] by revisiting and reviving certain visions of the future or of modernity, generated by mainly between the last third of the 19th century and the first half of the 20th century. The exhibition takes a transversal approach, intersecting different aesthetic and temporal veins. A selection of work from contemporary artists will be grouped with older work and documents – each giving perspectives to the others. In addition, one section will be dedicated to cinema and another to the various accessories, devices and artefacts developed by the steampunk community. in a separate section, the exhibition will also include the first French retrospective of the American magazine Retrofuturism, in the form of an installation designed by its originator, the artist and editor Lloyd Dunn."
