V-A-C Foundation presents Moscow Diaries by the Center for Experimental Museology (CEM) and the Museum of American Art in Berlin (MoAA). MoAA and CEM examine innovative approaches to art theory and practice, exploring issues around authenticity and the role of the museum in defining a work of art. The exhibition takes as its starting point two trips made to Moscow in the late 1920s – the first, by influential philosopher Walter Benjamin in 1926, and the second by Alfred Barr, the founding director of MoMA New York, in 1928. The exhibition is part of the Moscow Museum of Modern Art’s (MMOMA) programme Carte Blanche, which invites art institutions to implement their own curatorial initiatives at MMOMA sites.
