THE MUSEUM OF INNOCENCE

The Museum Of Innocence' contains the collaborative work of Matthys' art practice and it's critical character. The work itself will become an art-installation established in different phases and in collaboration with neighborhood children, architects, students, pedagogical institutions, manual workers and the artist herself.

The children's way of intuitive creation and building, the innocence of it, stands in contrast with the rational ideas of the architects and the political prestige most museums wishes to radiate. This way, Matthys wants to question the position of a museum and art in general. She wants to invite the public to think about the future of a museum, how an institution can connect with daily life in general and how it can take a position towards the neighborhood, the city and how to be a place to all layers of society.
