Museum of O.O.O. [Objecting Outcast Objects] is an kaleidoscopic installation based on the museum’s permanent art collection, in which J&K have detached carefully selected museum items from their normal setting and placed them in unfamiliar contexts.
Accompanying the show J&K are presenting the publication Museum of O.O.O. with a text piece by writer and art critic Pablo Larios, in collaboration with Antypirine Distribution.
For more info see press release of the museum.

During one of our ventures to the periphery of the human realm we have encountered life forms which, to this date, humankind has labeled merely as “objects”, identified entirely as inert and oblivious phenomena. Remarkably, we have now registered clear signs of consciousness and collective awareness expressed in various forms of visionary social practices amongst these beings. Appearing in colonies, camps, gangs and tribes they are rebelling against the man-made anthropocentric world order with its subject-object division and systematising of everything in categories such as trash, commodity, and art. Several indications point towards a current preoccupation with the formation of subversive parallel societies in highly innovative ways. These life forms are protesting! They will no longer accept their designated objecthood and their banishment from the realm of the living! Only being content with complete emancipation, they now identify themselves as non-conformists, drop-outs and free-spirited visionaries of a new world order in which they will no longer sit still. It seems like they are working on a greater plan…
