The Museum of Space Junk is a critical project which considers life, ethics and politics in our space-bound future. Exploring collective futuring, world-building and speculative design, the project invites writers and philosophers to respond to a mystery ‘digital artefact’ with a short piece of writing. Space Junk is hosted by New School Policy and Design for Outer Space (NSPDOS), and produced on the occasion of the Italian Virtual Pavillion, Venice Biennale of Architecture 2021.
