‘Theorist Training Camp/Practice Piece Part 0′ (2011) by Nathan Gray.
Marcel Broodthaers, ‘Musée de l’art Moderne, Départment des Aigles’ (1968)
In 1968, the Belgian artist Marcel Broodthaers created an installation in his house that he entitled the Musée de l’Art Moderne, Départment des Aigles, or Museum of Modern Art, Department of Eagles. This was a fictive entity in that the museum had neither a permanent building nor a collection; nonetheless, it was elaborated by Broodthaers in about a dozen further installations. Evidence of the museum’s existence (apart from its title) ultimately encompassed specially created objects, films, and art reproductions as well as ephemera such as wall labels and signage.
John Latham, ‘Art and Culture’ (1966-69)
In 1966, Latham borrowed Clement Greenberg’s book Art and Culture from the St Martin’s School of Art library and organised a party at which guests chewed pages from it; the remains were then fermented into mash, distilled and returned in a test-tube to the library.
