Interacting with the collection

Welcome to Passage, the new experimental format that redesigns the space on the ground floor of Museion in order to present works from the museum collection free of charge and independently of the other exhibitions on display. Originally conceived as a passage between the historic and modern parts of the city, Museion Passage uses this aspect of the building as a metaphor to prompt an informed dialogue between generations, practitioners and communities.

Passage sees the collection as an archive of unnarrated stories and bridges to the modern world. In fact, the topics and events that impact today’s active and multi-disciplinary cultural landscape will influence which works are selected. The first work featured in this new format is 102 Signs for a Museum Fence by the artist Matt Mullican.

Admission to Museion Passage is free.
