About this title


An artwork in itself, the catalog Museum off Museum accompanies a two-part
exhibition held over five months at Bielefelder Kunstverein in which seven artists
explore the museum as a space of reflection. The exhibition, curated by Thomas
Thiel, comprised multiple artistic and scientific approaches to museum-based
narrative including installations, talks and a blog. The book beautifully documents
each of the exhibition phases and clearly presents the many contributions to this
substantial project. Its episodic organization suggests its encyclopedic nature.
Designed in large-format hardcover with full-color broadsheet-scaled pages printed
on newsprint, many of the sections are accompanied by extensive footnotes.
The work of artists Ozlem Altin, Kader Attia, Isabel Cornaro, Simon Fujiwara,
Camille Henriot, Jeremy Deller & Bruce Lacey, Slavs and Tatars among many other
contributors comprise more than 30 artistic and scientific statements in the form
of essays, interviews, visual statements and exhibition documents.
