The Incest Museum
Simon Fujiwara is a Berlin and London-based artist.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.
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.
