Sue Corke (London, UK) and Hagen Betzwieser (Stuttgart, Germany) met by chance in 2008 at a bus stop whilst conducting artistic field work in Norway.
Working since 2009 as WE COLONISED THE MOON their graphic art and installation projects have embodied a range of DIY production techniques within a partnership rooted in absurdism, characterized by slogans and catchphrases.
Sue Corke is a visual artist with an interest in the theatre of illustration.
Hagen Betzwieser‘s artistic practice as The Institute of General Theory
is exploring the gaps and connections between art and science to create
New New Media.
Together they seek to demonstrate that the future may indeed be frightening, but also highly entertaining.
Previous projects have included creating solutions for space waste by disguising satellites as asteroids; building a solar powered solarium because ‘the sun dies anyway’ and synthesizing the smell of the moon.
