More About Museum of Memories :
Museum of Memories Edition 1.0, is the first of the Portable Museum series and part of the BangaloREsidency project supported by Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan, Bangalore. Artist in Residence
Eduardo Conceição has created the structure in which the museum will be housed.
The events that have unfolded in Bangalore over New Year’s eve have been a trigger of sorts. The formal spaces in which stories, responses and dialogues can be shared are few and often loud and cluttered. These shrinking spaces and the need for more shared experiences led to the creation of The Museum of Memories.
The first edition of a larger, ongoing project — The Portable Museum – would be Museum of Memories. It will use art– film, song, visuals – to respond to issues around gender and equality. The Museum of Memories will also be an extension of the ongoing Gender Bender programme, a joint initiative of Sandbox Collective and Goethe-Institut /Max Mueller Bhavan, Bangalore.
The Portable Museum hopes to be a space that can appear anywhere, and open up to different kinds of work, constantly changing, shifting and responding to the environment around it.
In addition, to the display of art works, there will also be a section of the Museum that will be a Museum of shared memories and experiences. A live booth where people can, for a minute or two, share their experiences, thoughts, opinions and memories; speak up, speak out, or simply speak, in a safe space.
The structure of the Museum is an easy to transport, collapsible skeleton that can be set up anywhere in record time and can be used in a variety of ways to display artworks.
