a future museum


about the future museum


The project, ‘A Future Museum of the Present’ (Een Toekomstig Museum van het Heden)  grew out of a residency undertaken by the artist Keith Piper in Dordrecht, Holland over a two month period during the summer of 2010. The residency was commissioned as part of ‘Unfixed’, a multiplatform project exploring the elusive "truth" of photography and its relationship to ideas of ethnicity, culture and identity in contemporary art. Amongst the multiple outcomes of this project is an exhibition featuring the work of six international artists taking place at the Centre for Contemporary Art (CBK) Dordrecht from the 23rd October to the 4th December 2010. During this period, the site of the ‘Future Museum’, a small house situated at number 113 Voorstraat (the same street as the CBK) opens to the public.
