Art in the international space station

Launching the Art mission Planned Schedule


In early 2022, Rakia Mission is scheduled to launch into space, and onboard will be Eytan Stibbe, Israel’s second man in space and the first to fly to the International Space Station (ISS). Alongside this scientific and educational mission, there will be a series of new works of art in sub-gravity conditions.


Art, in its various forms, will accompany the mission into outer space from the beginning of its journey and will serve as a driving force for new possibilities and for thinking about the human essence. Art created in preparation for space travel, outside the earth’s atmosphere and relative to space, generates imaginative ideas ahead of their time. Art leads the fantasy of space travel and the possibilities it holds for humanity. It is an opportunity to think about the unknown and man and pose a challenge for scientists and ourselves.


The art mission in “Rakia” strives to create new and groundbreaking forms, actions, and thoughts about the human essence and the contemporary. The art mission is being carried out in collaboration with CDA Holon and with the support of the Pais Committee for Arts and Culture. Within it, 15 artists have been invited to develop proposals for works for the space station, the communication sphere, and the earthly viewing of the journey. The artists are accompanied by the mission’s curator, Udi Edelman, and an advisory team. In the coming months, a series of works will be formulated for the journey – at the space station, on earth, and in the media spaces, and will join the new space exploration as an essential component.


The artists were invited to engage in the following areas: nonhuman aspects – the astronomical, the molecular, and the virtual; the human body in space; the psychology of space travel; sound and communication on the space station; connections to the scientific and educational missions and their expansion.

May 2021: Development of proposals by artists

The Rakia Mission is an example of the extraordinary collaboration between a great number of different entities. It is an expression of the values of peace, innovation, leadership and social responsibility. The combination of dreams this mission represents, and the proof that anything is possible - these are a major part of our vision.
