MUME
1st Edition / 2nd Edition / 3th Edition / by Oscar Cueto

MUME (January, 2019)
"The Butterfly Effect: Notes for a Possible Fiction"
Andrea Torreblanca de la Sierra (invited curator), Yanieb Fabre (invited artist)

The second edition of 'MUME' took place in my former Studio and was hosted and supported by 'das weisse haus'. For this edition 'MUME' invited the mexican curator Andrea Torreblanca de la Sierra. Andrea Torreblanca was interested in anecdotes that relate to each other through minor associations and resemblances. This is a story of a possible fiction, one that connects different characters through small gestures, histories and pieces of evidence that fashion a relationship between museums, dance, politics and architecture. The Butterfly Effect: Notes for a Possible Fiction began as a personal quest to find the first female museum director in America, while Torreblanca was simultaneously being invited by me to realize an exhibition at MUME which was the perfect setting to replicate an itinerant "Bragg Box", ornamented as a Baker House with a "skin" that uses the pattern of dazzle warships to contain multiple stories. The museum-studio-box-house is thus set as a mise en abyme, where all facts or fictions can be seen, connected, forgotten or become invisible within an imagined place. The culmination or rather, the beginning of this story, is framed by the work of Yanieb Fabre, a Mexican artist based in Paris. Her video Neurotique New Erotique (2014) is set at the stairways of the Seine river in Paris. TEXT: SPA / ENG / GER
