“The archives is a fiction.”

José Esteban Muñoz, Cruising Utopia: The Then and There of Queer Futurity (p.121)

 

“By gathering artifacts into new assemblages, one would activate taxonomic transgressions, clashing entrenched identifications and highlighting the underlying structures of power generated by listings, narratives, visualizations and omissions […] To articulate the complexity of the museum through its collections would necessitate a curatorial methodology that explored different propositions, be they aesthetic, art critical, cultural, historical, scientific or personalized.”

 

Clémentine Deliss, The Metabolic Museum (p. 31/32)
