MUME 2020

MUME is a nomadic museum by artist Oscar Cueto that seeks to create alternate narratives in the post-capitalist and global migration context. This Museo Mexicano presents cooperative projects between international curators and artists in Austria.

The 2020 program includes three curators based in Mexico who will propose projects with works by international artists and will be based in different locations, selected according to the characteristics of the project.

#1: Glosa (temporary rewriting) | 26th to 28th August, 2020

MUME has invited the Mexican-based Italian curator Nina Fiocco to the first exhibition of the 2020 programme. She will present the project "Glosa (temporary rewriting)" in the Karl Marx-Hof.

A clue. Today, more than ever, thinking the voice, like our public space, the impermanent resistance of our bodies in contact with other bodies: occupying a space, constructing a language, rewriting another history. This exhibition is presented as a provisional monument of works, practices and performances by artists that in recent times have shaped stories to add their own voices to the voices of others.

#2: New popular barroque | 8th to 10th October 2020

Roselin Rodriguez "migrates" from Mexico to Vienna a collection of objects, images and texts by artists who have worked with the baroque economy in various ways. Against the imperial Viennese Baroque, Espinosa presents a popular Latin American Baroque of informal economy and piratery. A resonance in these artistic practices is the recent proposal of the Argentinean theorist Verónica Gago about a bottom-up neoliberalism that appropriates, reproduces, changes and promotes macroeconomic narratives as a culture of resistance. This popular Baroque produces an art that departs from material poetics and residual culture.

#3: I'm still listening | 27th to 29th May, 2021

For this edition, MUME has invited the Mexican curator Bárbara Perea, who in collaboration with the artist Juanjosé Rivas, present the exhibition “I'm still listening”.

This exhibition includes a series of listening sessions and projections on three dates in public spaces of the sound piece Self-Isolation Soundscape by Rivas, which are part of an exercise of nightly field video and audio recordings the artist has made from his studio window in Mexico City during the months of confinement to serve as an audiovisual journal. Additionally, a pressed flexidisc, commissioned for the Project by MUME, will be distributed during the presentations and by postal service to fifty postal addresses in Austria.
