Molecular Museum

This project revolves around the question of networking heritage and methods for a deterritorialisation of the museum. It engages directly with the museum's collection and is being realized in the form of interactive educational projects around Catalonia in 2007 and 2008 and concluded by a laboratory at MACBA in June 2008.

Educational Projects:

Express Art Portable Museum

Project for early childhood and primary education students

This project offers resources for work in the classroom, allowing time for an in-depth study and understanding of elements that were only touched on during the guided tour. By opening this up to schools, we can propose and answer a variety of questions about Contemporary Art, all of which are directly linked to different works of Art in the MACBA Collection.

Lectures on a collection

Program for secondary education and high school students

The project also includes two parts: the first takes place in the school, with the help of a CD, which the MACBA provides to the center and which is conceived as a tool to help teachers prepare the visit to the Museum.
The second part takes place in the Museum itself and enables participants to visit the MACBA Collection with a specialized monitor.

Molecular Museum: Can Cultural Heritage be Organized Through Non-Territorial Networks? Towards a New Kind of Institutionality

Laboratory at MACBA, Barcelona
14 June 2008

The laboratory is structured around presentations of case studies and experiences with institutional models that are light, precarious and deterritorialised as the starting point for a new, different institutional model, a kind of post-colonial museum to replace the dominant model that was established in the 19th century, generated by a geopolitical and cultural order determined by the emerging culture of industrial and colonial capitalism. What is the museum for the post-industrial, post-colonial age?
