Mudam Luxembourg – Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean

Deep Deep Down

Collection presentation
Curators: Shirana Shahbazi, Tirdad Zolghadr

Collections are only exhibited to a small extent. Much of the art rarely sees the light of day. What if we rendered more obvious a collection’s natural state of being instead? Not to mourn its life in the shadows but to make it understandable and sensational. In every sense of the term.

To do so, one would use quantitative criteria instead of thematic or formal ones. One would also embrace the backstage tools – crates, Excel files, jpegs, backstage devices – as clearly visible parts of the curatorial process. This in an attempt to turn a public collection into something one can grasp intellectually and physically.
