Statement by Peter Weibel

I have always appreciated the work of museum in progress because it broke away in its earliest days from historical institutions and expanded into the public and media space. In autumn 1999 I curated and organised a project in cooperation with museum in progress on media in media, entitled “Art and Global Media”. Contributions from European newspapers, on European poster walls, on television, media installations, a symposium: today such formats are copied by many institutions, but as in many areas museum in progress showed the way.
