Jane and Louise Wilson «Rising I.S.S Hydrolaboratorium» Star City 2000.

Jane and Louise Wilson, Hydrolaboratorium, 2000.

Jane and Louise Wilson explore the key sites of the Russian space program. The huge complexes like Star City in the North of Moscow or the Cosmodrome in Baikonur, stand in sharp contrast to the gloomy every-day-reality of socialism. They are architectural statements of power in which the dreams of the superpower culminated in the dream of conquering space. The sites stand like memorials for a perished utopian civilization.
