|Abstract: ||Photographs of the intallation "Galerie des Alephs: Academic Exercises Towards a Museum of Museums," 2002. Pablo Helguera, born 1971, Mexico City.
Helguera constructed "a utopia from the contexts of biblical eschatology and Jewish mysticism, early modern memory theatre and contemporary literature."|
|Description: ||"Gallery of the Alephs: Academic Exercises towards a Museum of Museums represents, in the form of an oversized candelabra, "a point where all other points meet" (Borges). A human desire for the representation of all knowledge (encyclopedism) and the mythologies of cultural imagination will here be subjected to a critical analysis, also in conjunction with modern knowledge structures such as the internet."|
