Fungi, larvae and mites meet discarded materials from the museum collections and laboratory waste in a living experiment in the basement of the museum. Each Friday from 13:30 you can join this tour to The Living Room to hear more about the project and meet some of its newest inhabitants: mycelium sculptures developed together with the 3D-lab at the Royal Academy of Fine arts and mites (Lepidoglyphus destructor).
The Living Room is a living experiment in which we work across conservation, artistic practice and humanities research to rethink the end of objects at the museum. In the tour, one of the creators of the project, Martin Grünfeld, invites you for a chat about our experiments with living organisms and questions about value, art and conservation. Usually museums do their best to avoid heritage-feasts but what if we perceive heritage eaters not only as a threat but also as potential collaborators?
No sign up needed. The tour is free with a valid ticket to the museum and begins in the reception. As part of the tour visitors not only get the opportunity to see the experiments but also to actively participate by reorganizing or re-mixing some of the objects in the exhibition to participate in the continuous life of the project.
