An A5 format booklet, featuring a short essay on the museum as a potentially erotically charged space, an effect deriving from the restrictive set of rules and conventions associated with the museum as a public sphere.
My hypothesis in this text is that these rules however lead to a projection of haptic, even libidinous desire and the urge to interact onto the other museum visitors, transforming them into the substitute object of desire and subject to ones observation just as much as the art itself. Briefly talking about the impact of the architecture and its role, I make a connection to Foucault’s term of the Heterotopia. In the rest of the booklet I attempt to prove my theory by analysing examples in film. This publication has been extended to a video-essay in 2018.
