09.02.24 – 25.02.24, MUSÉE IMAGINAIRE, A Poem on Shared Vision

"For while photography is bringing a profusion of masterpieces to the artists, these latter have been revising their notion of what it is that makes the masterpiece."

  • A. Malraux

"Photography can be used to wield power, but it can also be used to restrain power and to imagine, sometimes even to create, new forms of sharing the world."

  • A. Azoulay

Musée Imaginaire: A Poem on Shared Vision explores collaborative potentials in photography as well as in exhibition making. Moving away from the idea of a 'single creator' that shaped the foundation of Western art history, our exhibition experiments with speculative forms and potentials of non-hierarchical creation. Instead of giving a simple answer to the question „What is collaboration?“, it parses it in its different situations, materialities, durations, languages, sounds and tactilities. By offering a practical experiment, a theoretical proposition, and a pedagogical tool, we invite the visitors to a spatial experience, open for negotiation and exchange.
