Come si vive – letteralmente – in un museo? Un esperimento di clausura

Cesare Pietroiusti


The text tells the experience of the artist locked up, in total isolation and without interruption, for a week, inside the Louisiana Museum in Copenhagen in 1996, before the opening of an exhibition. On each of the seven days, the artist used objects chosen as essential baggage for a 24-hour survival by seven different people. The particular condition of alienation of “living in someone else’s skin” is highlighted, as well as the vicissitudes of a performance that can find new meanings in its narration.
