CITIES

Our mission is to create, procure, research, distribute, and preserve art in public space.

There are more artworks by dead men stored in museums than can be exhibited. What remains is the virtual, imaginary area, with it's almost infinite amount of room.

Instead of continuing the current trend of art as “temporary intervention”, we use the space between the worlds as a self-determined, permanent and experimental playground, with the goal to reawaken imagination and collaboration in public space.

We challenge the status quo and redefine the concept of the museum, rethinking the questions:

What is art and who perceives it?

We support this reoccupation of public space with a decentralized platform based on augmented reality, making gps-anchored artifacts accessible to everyone, both at home and abroad.

Our museum’s 'building' is expanded through participation of the public, inscribed anywhere and without boundaries, making art virtually tangible and accessible, conveying the permanent transformation of art and society by technology.

We are timeless, have infinite space and are always open to the public.
