    They Used to Call it the Moon is a group exhibition exploring the enduring presence of the moon and the rich iconography of space on the popular imagination of artists. With reworked stories and imagined realities, ideas and tropes from science fiction, mixed with conspiracy theories and an interest in fictional restaging, the exhibition illustrates differing global perspectives of the moon and reworks its prevailing image on our collective imagination. The exhibition brings together artists from Pakistan, France, Croatia and the UK working in film, photography, sculpture and collage. Guiding the exhibition is the notion that our moon may come to mean something different, as new geopolitical realities make way for a new relationship with space. As China seeks to follow their Jade Rabbit space rover project with fully manned missions to the moon and India’s successful Chandrayaan programme as they further their ambitions for a mission to Mars in 2014, we seem to be entering a new geopolitical space race. Artists: Katy Cole, Caroline Corbasson, Aaron Guy, Mishka Henner, Thomas Ireland, Kate Liston, Cristina de Middel, Aleksandra Mir, Michael Mulvihill, Mehreen Murtaza, Liam Murray, Katie Paterson, Joseph Popper, Sophy Rickett, Antonio Riello, Aura Satz and Marko Tadic.

      Joseph Popper’s ‘The One-Way Ticket’ project is a cinematic spectacle, and the craft behind how it was made is a perfect example for those looking to cut corners to build and design their own sets. We always enjoy meeting and talking to creatives, so it was a real pleasure for us to talk to Popper. He gave us some of his time to talk to us and explain the filmmaking and design process as well as how he found the materials to build his space capsule.
