On a text panel at the entrance of our exhibition in Rotterdam « Moves », Hubert and we wrote: « it’s been a long time that it was considered “normal” to attack the museum and to consider the institution of the museum as obsolete. Now time has come to work WITH the museum, to play with it and to develop the museum into something new. »
As such Damisch conceived a chessboard and a game of chess, with works he selected from the Rotterdam collections.
I invite you hereby to do the same, but with words I associate with the new museum, which Hubert already had intended to realize with and for us through his exhibition.
