A Stateless Museum


A project by Aliocha Imhoff & Kantuta Quirós

The stateless museum undoes the museum of its patrimonial obsession, of its linear narrations, it redefines the transmission, not as a genealogical attempt, to maintain, to preserve, but to reopen the angle of our becoming. It maroons the history of art, makes its old chronological narratives flee, reinvents broken lines, artistic archipelagos. The stateless museum is the archive of erased, mute lives. It exists in the blind spots of nations, in areas without jurisdiction.

Production: FRAC de La Réunion, Cité des Arts, Ecole Supérieure d’Art de La Réunion, Les Ateliers Médicis.
