The Anti-Museum : An Anthology
Mathieu Copeland, Balthazar Lovay (Eds.)

The museum is constantly a target for criticism, whether it comes from artists, thinkers, curators, or even the public. From the avant-gardes of the twentieth century up until our contemporary era, the museum’s suspect position has generated countless gestures, iconoclastic actions, scathing attacks, utopias, and alternative exhibition spaces. For the first time, this anthology is devoted to the anti-museum, through anti-art, the anti-artist, anti-exhibition, as well as anti-architecture, anti-philosophy, anti-religion, anti-cinema and anti-music. This notion – unpatented but regularly reappropriated – traces the erratic, fractured, and sometimes paradoxical counter-history of the contestation of artistic institutions. From the first anti-exhibition to the first catalog retracing the history of “Closed Exhibitions,” from Dada to Noise music, from “Everything is Art” to NO!art, the Japanese avant-gardes to Lettrist cinema, and not forgetting such major protest figures as Gustav Metzger, Henry Flynt, Graciela Carnevale, and Lydia Lunch, The Anti-Museum sketches a polyphonic panorama where negation is accompanied by a powerful breath of life.

Edited by Mathieu Copeland and Balthazar Lovay.

Robert Nickas
Live Free or Die


Robert Nickas is a critic, freelance curator, and editor of the Index magazine (New York). He is also one of the free spirits who were nurtured by the libertarian punk slogan “do it yourself”. In this collection, covering twenty years of activity, Nickas combines humour with intellectual rigor, as well as a reliable historical memory to broach works of personalities as diverse as Maurizio Cattelan, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Cady Noland, John Miller, Haim Steinbach or Andy Warhol, by way of David Cronenberg, Melvins, Père Ubu and numerous others, also slipping in untimely observations on the alleged death of painting, the “Golden 80s” of New York art world, and the role of the exhibition curator.

Working independently, Robert Nickas has realized more than forty exhibitions for galleries and museums since 1984. He recently co-curated the Biennale of Lyon in France (with the Consortium team), is an editor of Artforum, and a Guest Curator at P.S.1 in New York.
His writings and interviews have appeared in Afterall and Sound Collector, as well as in numerous catalogues and monographs – Felix Gonzalez-Torres, On Kawara, Olivier Mosset, Cady Noland, Andy Wharol.

Zahm aimed at fusing together his two worlds, fashion and art, in creating Purple.
