    The tale that rockets tell

    From Monday 31 August till Friday 9 October

    Our territories are growing vertically, out of the globe, into the universe. The relationship between our imagination and the planet is extending its physical boundaries. This is a possibility activated by the evolution of a single object, one that was born out of gunpowder, some 1100 years ago, the rocket.

    Since its conception in China, it has evolved in many cultures and evoked powerful emotions in all of them. The flight of a rocket can detonate the deepest existential fears as well as it can awake the spiritual ones. The rocket can reduce our living space to ashes, or extend it to outer space; it can embody the technological, the ritual, and death.

    This collection of films, the website https://rockettrail.net/, and this exhibition are the synthesis of two-year research directed by Lucas Muñoz Muñoz. In collaboration with other designers and filmmakers, he has explored some of the thoughts and feelings this object can trigger throughout the world. A context-specific research, driven through territories in Asia, the Middle East, and Europe, that takes a myriad looks at this artifact and the ways it activates, for good or bad, the humans involved around it.

    The exhibition will be on from Monday 31 August till Friday 9 October.

    There will be a public opening on Friday 4 September from 17:00 to 18:30 for a limited number of people to follow the COVID-19 regulations and keep social distancing. Send an email to Lorenzo Gerbi (lorenzo@baltanlaboratories.org) to reserve a spot.
