Summary
The Absent Museum' is a large thematic exhibition that explores the absence of museums in public debates today. What relation can exist between historical awareness and aesthetic commitment? How can artists maintain the tension between globalisation's paradoxes and history's turbulences, and their individual sensibilities and voices? Works and new productions by around 49 artists - both contemporary and those active in the recent past - map what is at stake for museums and the societies that inspire them.
