Is the museum a collective reservoir of knowledge or a platform for experimentation? White cube or workshop? Architectural icon or forum for interactive communication?

There have long been a variety of notions, theories and utopias about the museum – an institution that has itself changed again and again over the course of its history. It is not least of all artists who continually investigate this public venue of imagery and the experience of the same, this space that oscillates between opposites such as history and future, boom and crisis. On the one hand, museums have traditionally served artists as means of training and sometimes as studios. On the other hand, – in their art and manifestos alike – artists have persistently attacked museums, critically addressed their supposed neutrality and objectivity and questioned their gestures of showing, for example from a feminist, anti-racist or antic-olonial perspective.

Entitled “Museum Matters”, the current Videobox series concentrates on works by emerging and established artists and filmmakers addressing the
theme of the museum. Pursuing documentary, experimental, essayistic or narrative approaches, they explore museums, their policies, presentations and forms of mediation with the aim of exposing the conditions of collections and provoking alternative forms of archives.
