Museums and libraries are the repositories of history but they remain flawed and biased in their representation. How can we disrupt the pre existing structures which surround us?
How can we
represent fairly our many co-existing and conflicting memories and histories?
The Museum of Half Truths will aim to answer these questions by exploiting the conventions of these institutions to present a playful take on a museum that is transparent about its subjectivity.
Our compulsion to collect, archive and document history is inherently human. These artists draw from personal and historical archives and cultural tropes to investigate the relationship between fact, fiction and memory.
The artists featured question our recording of cultural memory; investigate rituals and traditions; the whitewashing of popular culture; and memorialise and advocate for underrepresented communities.
Museum of Half Truths 致力利用這些機構的慣例去回應以上的提問，並以嬉戲的態度透視博物館的主觀臆斷。
