What is your relationship to the MUSEUM?

rbcm1rbcm1arbcm7

The Museum is a politically mediated space; the lighting (a black box), the placement and situation of the objects tell a story in a certain way. The museum positions you in a linear pre-determined time capsule.

There is a relationship between the viewer and the observed: You are the observed the story is YOU. The ART object is a witness of history. rbcm1brbcm1c

The Museum is the context of who you are, not just what you put on the wall.

In the museum the world comes to you, it is a contact zone.rbcm1e
