The Muesum

The Muesum There are many museums in the world but only one m{ }esum. What the m{ }esum in fact is, we
may never know.

The foreignness of what you no longer are, no longer possess, or haven’t yet become lies in wait at the m{ }esum. It can in many ways be seen as an universal depository for all our lost, ideals, selves, relationships, relatives, utopias, pens, lighters, memories, work, potential, directions, braincells and unrealised possibilities. The m{ }esum is bigger than you can imagin

e and yet it takes up no space. With a collection that is simultaneously intangible and forever expanding, most of it remains hidden, the specifics irretrievable, for only that which is lost or missing can enter the m{ }esum. However, do not be fooled into thinking that the m{ }esum is a fictive m{ }esum, or some kind of philosophical or esoteric joke, for the m{ }esum, despite archaeology’s inability to prove its existence is not mere abstractions or conceptual titillations. Rather the m{ }esum, one of its kind, is the world’s largest and and most significant m{ }esum to specialise above all in loss and unrealised possibilities, known as n∅bjects*.

The diverse and manifold m{ }esum collection include n∅bjects* dating from ancient times to the present day, and beyond, in virtually every category. From missing masterpieces to the unpublished, unfinished and undone. From the burned down Great Library of Alexandria to your lost socks. From the historic, documented, memorable, renowned or infamous to the forgotten, unidentified, unsung, mundane and obscure. From the concrete and tangible to the metaphysical and emotional. The m{ }esum contains uncountable sets of n∅bjects*, many unknown, it is thus impossible to determine the collection’s size with any certainty, nonetheless, since the the m{ }esum specialises in all things lost, in theory the collection is always complete, even when parts are missing.

The exact location of the m{ }esum is debated though it is believed that the m{ }esum resides within itself. Yet details of sightings and possible m{ }esum portals have been recorded in other places, most recently in Berlin, where for the convenience of the m{ }esum visitor a public wing of the m{ }esum opened its doors on November 5th 2011. Here you may find the m{ }esum attendant, meticulously cataloging n∅bjects into the muesum archive or lovingly tending to your lost hats and scarves, to your lost trust in political systems, to the memory of a body, to your old ego, to your numerous lost telephones, to your future plans, to your lost cause, to your unfulfilled desires and to the answer that you never received.
