VDNKh and Memorial museum of Cosmonautics

Last year I visited VDNKh and Memorial museum of Cosmonautics once again, I was struck once again by the place. Some might see the ‘Space Race’ technology as obsolete or as mere propaganda, others as phallic symbolism and conquest, but I saw something else. I saw the Retro technology as something real and tangible.

I saw the artwork as inspiring and overall it seemed to me to be a symbol for optimism and the future which seems to have diminished in recent years.
