Art | imagine a museum (or: the remembering body)
Featuring live art in a museum, over six weeks, crossbreeds opposing formats: the performative format and the exhibition format.

The attempt to shake the matrix while remaining within it leads to a series of activities such as dancing, teaching, talking, playing music, listening, reminiscing, therapy or meditation.
