“The Museum of the Future” doesn’t require an edifice or institution, and it doesn’t require a collection or exhibition programme. There exist no restrictions or guidelines of any kind for it. It can emerge at any time and in any place.
“The Museum of the Future” can come into being mentally. It’s a matter of perception, attitude and value judgement. Everything depends on attention given to it as well as the meaning attributed to it. In accordance with these features, it’s possible to establish the desired arrangements, references, and combinations for everything that already exists in order to give birth to new works of art.
A “Museum of the Future” arises as soon as anybody will come up with a definition for it. And it’ll be alive as long anyone will support it with his or her appreciation and perception. And what has been found can, of course, also be passed on to another person. Photography as a medium, for example, works very well in this respect.
*One of my “Museums” came into being on Friday, 26 February 2016, at Heinersdorferstrasse 47 in Berlin, Weissensee. Perhaps it’s still there. However, it’ll never be the same again. But that’s insignificant now. It’s always and on every occasion about something we still aren’t aware of—in life as well as in art.
The photographs of this work are available as a catalog in the shop. The project “KKLB Berlin” is based on the photographic exploration of this place. A conversation conducted by cultural journalist Pirmin Bossart provides background information: read
