Exhibition Catalogue Museums in exile, presented at MO.CO., Montpellier (11 november 2022 - 5 february 2023).
The exhibition explores the unique history of three distinctive collections: that of the Museo Internacional de la Resistencia Salvador Allende (MIRSA), preserved at the Museo de la Resistencia Solidaridad Salvador Allende of Santiago, Chile; Ars Aevi, the collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art of Sarajevo; and the most recent, the collection compiled by the association for a National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Palestine, the works of which are currently housed at the Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris.
Three collections, three narratives, three case studies on three continents: the origin and the outreach of these collections are fundamentally acts of resistance, solidarity and hope in the face of the chaos and violence that each of these countries has experienced or continues to experience.
Beyond the light shed on cultural heritage as a collective symbol to protect and on creation as an act of resistance and hope, Museums in Exile offers the possibility to revisit artworks from more than 80 artists of 30 different nationalities.
