Museum Without Walls

André Malraux is perhaps best known for his idea of the “Museum Without Walls”, a museum in the mind, comprising the art of past centuries and civilizations. Malraux visualized art without the traditional confines (and constructs) of the museum grouping, i.e., by country and periodization. This image of Malraux contemplating images for one of his texts has become iconic in the way it anticipates the  “museum without walls” that is the internet and our own activities here on this website. The shuffling of images can reveal the latencies of the archive.
