If Space Art defines an art form that depicts and explores space through imagination, in painting, or using digital media, astronautical art determines an art that seeks to interact directly with outer space.
The previous artists never considered the rocket as a part of the work but only as a vehicle to transport artworks into outer space. “Xu Bing Tianshu” changed space art in its foundations in considering the rocket as an essential part of the work. He conceived as the first artist in history the rocket itself, its operations and entire process, as an artwork with multiple faces. With his radical and methodical mindset, Xu Bing explored astronautical art by understanding the meaning, essence and possible scope of its various articulations.
“Xu Bing Tianshu” became something much more than an artwork. It became a statement about the world, engaging multiple viewpoints, of the visible and the invisible. But with a total perspective. Xu Bing conceptually and practically merged the highest level of result-oriented and intelligible science with the articulated unintelligibility of art. The first representing logic and praxis, the second questioning it through its own conceptual unintelligibility.
In this lecture, Senior Curator and Senior Researcher of Red Brick Art Museum Jonas Stampe will analyze “Xu Bing Tianshu” Rocket, a work that he means has deeply impacted Space Art, as well as the milestone exhibition “Xu Bing: Art Beyond the Karman Line”. Through the discussion, we hope to stimulate new explorations and thinkings in this new field of art.
