Showing the Unimaginable. Space Knowledge in the Media: between Public Science and Artistic Creativity

Abstract : Since 2017 our research group from the Higher School of Economics has been collaborating with the Moscow Space Museum on the project "MediaSpace" to study and develop media formats that organize (and normalize) the transfer of knowledge among scientists, artists, museums, industry and business. Besides academic work and publications, we coordinate the annual conference MediaSpace, which brings together astrophysicists, popular science specialists and educators, artists, astronauts, astrophotographers, media professionals and bloggers, and businesspeople.
In my talk at the Leonardo Space, Art, Science & Culture Workshop, I will first give a brief overview of the public's knowledge about space research problems in general and in contemporary Russia in particular, using the issues that confront Russian space museums to examine how they transfer space science to society. In the second part of my talk, I will concentrate on my research on astrophotography and the problems of visually representing big space data for the general public: in museum exhibitions, educational projects, art works etc.
