An exploration of the concept of the museum from an artistic and outside perspective.
“Museum Off Museum,” the two-part exhibition at Bielefelder Kunstverein, explored the concept of the museum from an artistic and outside perspective. The exhibition investigated the subjective potential of museum-based narratives and the current interest among artists in the “museum” as a space of reflection within global circumstances.
This book documents each of the exhibition phases and outlines all of the contributions to this substantial project. Lavishly illustrated, with color throughout, it contains more than thirty artistic and scientific statements in form of essays, interviews, visual statements, and exhibition documentations.
Published on the occasion of the eponymous exhibition at Bielefelder Kunstverein in 2013.
