Museum 3017


A new Bucharest museum will be open at Nod Makerspace. Museum3017 is the exhibition that will inaugurate the space and will offer a look on  Bucharest of the year 3017. The curatorial concept belongs to Simina Badica: “The fictional script is placed in 3017 when a mysterious “time capsule” is found containing the anthropological research done on living in Bucharest: photos, interviews with Bucharest people, objects, dates, plans. The curators of 3017 discover (and make public in this exhibition) not only the results of the research, but also some mysterious concepts that they are trying to explore: LIVING, HOME, MUSEUM. ”
