MUSEUM

A museum of the present must always be a different one. In a time of constant change and the attending sense of powerlessness, the exhibition Museum seeks to open up and occupy new spaces. Rather than critically questioning the institution, the focus is on exploring its possibilities.

With works from the collection, new productions and loans, the exhibition Museum strives to unfurl the current liberties of art and thus of the present museum. Gestures of configuration, transformation and transgression here aid in the endeavour to conceive of—and make perceivable—the Other.

The museum is to be understood as a working title.
