The NASA-based work of Tom Sachs uses the ambition of the space program and brings it to his art. The future that was created by the space program is no the future we live in. Tom Sachs Space Program: Indoctrination, on view at the Art Sonje Center, Seoul, attempts to look at the world of 2022 through the optimism brought by the engineering feats of the 1960s. Here’s more from JUXTAPOZ:
The show is not just about space and NASA, but about the stages of creation and, literally, in making a dream come true. The steps and analysis taken. It’s fantasy and absolutely not. That is why Sachs continues to be such a pivotal and interesting figure this far into his career. What is fantasy and what is real? What are our dreams? As the gallery notes, “Tom Sachs’ SPACE PROGRAM represents the artist’s bold spin on the desires of human beings, and adventures beyond a world that has already been colonized through our modernization and industrialization process. As a setting for showing, experiencing, and taking part in the meticulous indoctrination process that drives the space program and the associated adventure, the exhibition is a place for education and gaining a new understanding of the anthropocene and humanity’s effect on this world and other worlds.”
