the absent museum

THE ABSENT MUSEUM is a non-fictional, albeit absent institution that investigates the relationship between institutions and social practices with a significant focus on marginalized feminist practices, social activism and grassroots philanthropic actions performed as, and upon, institutional critique. Institutional, in this sense, is defined as branches, categories and structures of political power, mostly within the contemporary cultural landscape, that bend under the dominating and overbearing weight of non-objective "special" interests of the capital. Considered in a space of post-marxist thought and under an undeniable threat of absolute power, in forms of fascism, racism, sexism and misogyny, THE ABSENT MUSEUM seeks to make visible actions of those individuals, collectives, communities and organizations that operate outside and without the help of traditional institutional structures and models.
