The Moon Museum was an alleged secret project carried out by NASA in 1969 which consisted of placing on the surface of the moon six artworks made expressly for the project by various North American artists from the 1960s. These were John Chamberlain, Forrest Myers, David Novros, Claes Oldenburg, Robert Rauschenberg and Andy Warhol.


Without being able to check if it was put into practice, Karlos Gil rescued what might have been the first 'Space Art' work in history and captured it in an installation which can be visited from June at LABoral.

The Moon Museum presents a narrative construction through overlapping stories, photographs and souvenirs that, combined with the audiovisual and technological material, will show this secret moon museum, based on a traditional  science-fiction story, creating a museum within another one: in LABoral.
