Le Musée Imaginaire

 

In 'Le Musée Imaginaire', André Malraux questions the role of Museums in relation to culture and the way they alter the nature of a piece of art.

 

Using this selective nature of memory regarding a place, an era or an exhibition, various daily life items and works of art are interchanging roles in order to create “psychic maps of Athens”.

 

What drives a museum to constant change and how does it assume its role of an interposing Post-modern symptom creating a co-dependent relationship between the art work and the exhibition space? Doesn’t its role as a depository of memory produce the same co-dependency effects?
