MUME 2021Oscar Cueto

MUME 2021

MUME is a nomadic anti-museum by artist Oscar Cueto that seeks to create alternative narratives in the decolonial and global migration context and to present collaborative projects between international curators and artists in Austria.

#3: MXTX, September 25 to 26, 2021 (September 24 is cancelled)

MXTX is an interactive performance in public space that deals with encountering the unknown and overcoming fears.
In a mobile, vitrine-like spatial structure positioned near the Weltmuseum, a performer interprets "gestures of defense" - in a hybrid costume reminiscent of Tyrolean Spiegeltuxers as well as Mexican feather crowns. These gestures are provided to her by passers-by, but also digitally, and she translates them into possible movement patterns of ritualized interaction.

#2: Ling's Golden Imperial Shop, September 1 and 2, 2021, 3 to 9 p.m.
Ling's Golden Imperial Shop is a pop-up store - a stopover for food and supplies and a space for socializing and gathering. This traces a genealogy of the elements that make up Mai Ling - as collective bodies and identities - and questions the exhibition and its politics. The store offers a mix of objects, music, and narratives that address issues of ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and diaspora, as well as the politics of body (re)presentation, self-identification, self-stigmatization, and the performativity of the "Asian figure."

#1: Radio Epicentro, June 16, 2021.
For this edition, MUME has invited Radio Epicentro, a project by Austrian-Mexican artist Doris Steinbichler. Radio Epicentro is the extension of the Mexican artist gallery Epicentro (2000-2005) into the real space of Vienna and simultaneously into the global virtual one. Radio Epicentro is a free space that links and renegotiates language, sound, relationships and situations; as social interaction, as poetic intervention, as political utopia, as performative act. Radio Epicentro is an open microphone and a chair that can be occupied.

The host/artist and her team will broadcast from three different locations in Vienna on Wednesday, June 16, 2021. The show features a mix of live broadcasts, recordings, music, live international collaborations and audience interactions.

You can listen to Radio Epicentro via this link.
