“Isn’t it great that there is no general culture anymore?”

The guest for the first Reading Room of 2016 was curator Chus Martínez. Her work explores how changes in art can enrich public life, with an emphasis on questioning the role of the museum. Martínez is head of the Institute of Art at the FHNW Academy of Art and Design in Basel. The director of the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam Beatrix Ruf took part in the evening as a respondent.

In this Reading Room Martínez explored how we can break with the conventions of the museum using imaginative metaphors such as osmosis and the octopus. The octopus is the only animal with part of its brain in its arms. Without a central nervous system, each arm ‘thinks’ and ‘feels’ independently but is also part of a single organism. Using the analogy of the octopus, what might a future museum look like that is not ‘consciously’ driven by a centre of aesthetic experiences but instead activates the senses of the visitors, the art, the animals and the things.

Read the article by Chus Martínez on e-flux, 'The Octopus in Love', and the essay 'Food in the Metabolic Era' as a pdf.
