The Incest Museum, A Guide by Simon Fujiwara
The Museum of Incest is an ongoing project initiated by Simon Fujiwara in 2008. Subtitled “An erotic survey of civilization from ape to man and back again,”
this architectural project is composed of a fictive institution that explores the erotic origins of man, while proposing incest as part of man’s ancestry. The publication
is a guide to the museum, including a discussion of the fictive museum’s architecture, curatorial features, and the works presented in it. It is based
on a performance-lecture realized by Fujiwara as part of the project, titled
The Museum of Incest. A Guided Tour.
Simon Fujiwara (born London, 1982) is a Berlin and London-based artist, whose works have recently been shown at the 53rd Venice Biennial, Frame project
at Frieze Art Fair, and MAK Center for Contemporary Art and Architecture.
The Incest Museum has been shown at Umberto Di Marino Arte Contemporana, Naples, The Royal College of Art, London, OTIS, Los Angeles, and Limonchello, London.
