MUSEUM #13 - DEN HAAG - 2014

A flyer was distributed at several parking lots in The Hague, advertising a (ficticious) pipe smoke contest in
the Literary Museum. It questions the use of collecting and showing utilitarian items once owned by writers
and it also questions the ‘event culture’ forced upon museums.
