Illegal Kosmonavtika (Russian for Cosmonautics) is a quiet protest being made by young artists living and working in Georgia. Their outward target is the various state and corporate entities who currently own the exclusive rights to space research. Illegal Kosmonavtika re-appropriates discarded imagery of the Soviet cosmos with its socially relevant ideals of human purpose in order to pose a very legitimate modern question: what kinds of 'skills' should be cultivated in order to survive if the current systems should collapse? The exhibition, held in a decommissioned building of the Institute of Space Structures, features site-specific works, along with the documentation and outcomes of the workshops held in Tbilisi Geophysical Observatory. In a thematic gesture, the participating artists create logos, outfits, and other visual symbols related to Illegal Kosmonavtika.
