"Lovely project! Just one question: so when that hero of the future has emptied his weapon of loo roll (I happen like to the Brit-English term for toilet paper), how does one reload. Also reminds me of the artwork Dennis Oppenheim produced with his…"

January 31, 2021 at 1am to May 10, 2021 at 11:45pm

The inaugural collection for Musiamo Cent will be curated over 100 days as a fictional parallel to documenta 15.  Submissions received from now will be entered with in-situ text into the museum collection on the 5Ft Storyhouse blog from 31 Jan - 10 May 2021 (100 days). No returns. All…See More
