Statement by Ina Blom

In a world where images are no longer mobilized by one distinct medium or another, but appear as crowds, clouds and flows, functions of databases, networks and interfaces – they must above all be understood as the differential parts of a topological culture in which mobility and change is no longer a temporary external disturbance, but constant, normal and immanent. museum in progress very early on understood the significance of institutional transformation in this context – inventing a 'museal' practice that found ways to operate critically within this image flow. Rather than trying to approach or contain it from some imagined position of outside stability and overview, museum in progress responded with a series of precisely targeted temporary interventions that provided new forms of difference or directionality.
