Paul Van Hoeydonck, Fallen Astronaut (2020)
Documentary film by Frank Herrebout - TRAILER
THE FALLEN ASTRONAUT - Documentary film about Paul Van Hoeydonck by Frank Herrebout
The Fallen Astronaut depicts the compelling story of one of the most extraordinary achievements of the Space Age, a sculpture on the moon dedicated to all the astronauts and cosmonauts who died during the Race to the moon.
For the first time after almost fifty years the artist has consented to participate in a documentary about the fascinating history of one of the most intriguing achievements of the space programme: placing the first and only work of art on the moon, by the Apolllo 15 mission in 1971.
Since 1961, Paul Van Hoeydonck explored the possibilities of a synergy between man and technology. His interest in Space was - and still is - expressed in an engaging body of work in which he profiles himself as an ‘archeologist of the future’. This long overdue documentary renders homage to the artist’s genius and his undeniable contribution to 20th Century art history.
This documentary was co-produced by Adrian Mibus and An Jo Fermon

With the Anti-Peinture exhibition, 24 April to 30 May, 1962, the curtain falls on G58 Hessenhuis. It is not an iconoclastic event as the title suggests, but a broad international overview of kinetic art and neodadaistic reliefs. Many of the artists were already in 1961 in the "nove tendencije" exhibition in Zagreb that had launched the "new tendencies". Callewaert Vanlangendonck Gallery tries to reconstruct this historic exhibition, by holding a group exhibition in which a number of protagonists are highlighted with their drawings, reliefs and anti-peinture art.

ZERO: Countdown to Tomorrow, 1950s–60s, is the first large-scale historical survey in the United States dedicated to the German artists' group Zero (1957–66) founded by Heinz Mack and Otto Piene and joined in 1961 by Günther Uecker, and ZERO, an international network of like-minded artists from Europe, Japan, and North and South America—including Lucio Fontana, Yves Klein, Yayoi Kusama, Piero Manzoni, Almir Mavignier, Jan Schoonhoven, and Jesús Rafael Soto—who shared the group’s aspiration to transform and redefine art in the aftermath of World War II. Featuring more than 40 artists from 10 countries, the exhibition explores the experimental practices developed by this extensive ZERO network of artists, whose work anticipated aspects of Land art, Minimalism, and Conceptual art. ZEROencompasses a diverse range of media including painting, sculpture, works on paper, installations, and archival materials such as publications and photographic and filmic documentation. The exhibition is organized around points of intersection, exchange, and collaboration that defined these artists’ shared history. Among the themes explored are the establishment of new definitions of painting (such as the monochrome, serial structures, and fire and smoke paintings); the introduction of movement and light as both formal and idea-based aspects of art; the use of space as subject and material; the interrogation of the relationship between nature, technology, and humankind; and the production of live actions or demonstrations. At once a snapshot of a specific group and a portrait of a generation, the show celebrates the pioneering nature of both the art and the transnational vision advanced by the ZERO network during a pivotal decade.
ZERO: Countdown to Tomorrow, 1950s–60s is supported by the exhibition’s Leadership Committee, with special thanks to The George Economou Collection, the committee’s Founding Member, as well as to Larry Gagosian, Axel Vervoordt Gallery, and Stefan Edlis and Gael Neeson.

The National Air and Space Museum is delighted to inform you that the public event, Sculpture on the Moon: Meet Artist Paul van Hoeydonck, has been rescheduled to be held in the Museum's "Moving Beyond Earth" exhibit in the building on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, December 12, 2013 at one o'clock in the afternoon.
You are cordially invited to attend.
Before the Apollo 15 mission in 1971, NASA astronaut and mission commander Dave Scott met van Hoeydonck in New York City and asked him to create a miniature sculpture that could be left on the Moon. Without any publicity, Fallen Astronaut, a three-inch aluminum figure, was brought along on the mission and left on the Moon, along with a plaque honoring the 17 American and Soviet space travelers who had died in service to human spaceflight. When the existence of the statue was revealed early in 1972, van Hoeydonck donated an exact copy to the Smithsonian Institution. It has been on public display in the "Space Race" gallery in the Museum in Washington, D.C. since 2001. Fallen Astronaut is the only sculpture on another world.
Van Hoeydonck, now 88, is a senior artist of renown, and has been interested in the creation of spaceflight-related art for five decades.
The program will feature a short presentation Senior Curator Tom Crouch, followed by an interview-style discussion with van Hoeydonck moderated by Space History curator Dr. Margaret Weitekamp. Van Hoeydonck will show photographs of some of his artwork during the discussion. This program will detail both a history of van Hoeydonck's work in spaceflight art, and NASA's ongoing interest in fine arts as they relate to human spaceflight. Van Hoeydonck will take questions from the public in conclusion.
If you would like to have seats reserved for you at this public event, please reply by December 1st to Paul Griffith at email@example.com or (202) 633-2568.
A video recording of the event will posted to the Museum's website (www.airandspace.si.edu) at a later date.
