The essay examines selected science fiction movies from the Cold War era from Poland, Czechoslovakia and the German Democratic Republic. The movies chosen for this analysis could serve as perfect examples of artistic discourse, in which certain phenomena could be observed that are of great significance for art in historical research. It is possible to see the influences of current questions and political events in visual pop culture that could be applied to high art. One can also trace how the visual culture was inspired by and complementary to Cold War politics; the Space Race in this particular case. The coincidence of the fascination about deep space and the future that is essential for Sci-Fi movies, with the obsession with future technologies and the space race during the Cold War, results in movies that are both typical for their genre but also could be seen as manifestations of the then current interests, fears and political agenda.
