Querida Ana, I am no less sceptical than you are. I find the video 
absolutely fantastic for everything it is able to project into the 
future as a kind of utopia, and as a barb into the absence of any such 
utopia in the present, but I am puzzled by the idealization that 
permeates it. As I understand, the really existing museum also could do 
nothing significant with the ideas of the video, although that is less 
tragic than being able to do nothing with postcoloniality.

Please tell us about your experiences with Moderna Museet and maybe we 
can learn something about curating.

un abrazo, Brian
