Opened yesterday Museum of Manufactured Response to Absence (MoMRtA) + UUNPLIFIED Sound installation by Tarek Atoui.
Exhibition will continue until 11th of June, 2012
MoMRtA’s exploration is conducted through a collection of 28 commissioned objects that purposefully conjure the fading of, and thereby recall, the golden era of Kuwaiti and Palestinian-Kuwaiti society. In light of the lack of collective images, narratives, and archives, memory is taken as the main point of reference for the museum’s objects. Fragile and fragmented, this is a memory that has been accumulated, dismantled, reassembled, and at times lost.
MoMRtA includes works by Kamel Abu Yahya, Mohamed Abusal, Pieke Bergmans, Bilal Chrif, Cevdet Erek, Bruno Fantoni, Mohssin Harraki, Raed Ibrahim, Hakim Jamain, Rebecca Joselyn, Katharine Morling, Paul Rioblotti, George Vlosich, Khadijeh Yosef and Nabeel Younis.
