Can you talk a lit­tle about your la­test pro­ject, re­gar­ding Mal­raux’s Imaginary Mu­seum?

Art Press - - SHCHUKIN COLLECTION -

What in­ter­ests me about this pro­ject is Mal­raux’s idea, one that ma­ny other people are be­gin­ning to un­ders­tand to­day, that Eu­ro-cen­trism has its li­mits. Mal­raux re­mar­ka­bly ex­plai­ned how and why it was on­ly in the twen­tieth cen­tu­ry that we un­ders­tood and adop­ted the art of an­cient Egyp­tian, Afri­ca and other cultures.
