The final edition of Cultural Matter will focus on Jeremy Bailey’s The You Museum, an evenly utopic as dystopian, but always humorous, personalised online museum. The project critically reflects on consumerism on the web and the perversity of the art market by playfully infiltrating the structures of the first, and mimicking the ones of the other. The project was developed during Bailey’s residency at ...Read more
