Spitzmaus Mummy in a Coffin and Other Treasures – Wes Anderson & Juman Malouf – Green Room


For this series of short films
we are going to give you a glimpse into some of the rooms
that Wes and Juman have put together for the exhibition
Spitzmaus Mummy in a Coffin and Other Treasures. As you enter the room,
you immerse yourself in a miniature world that often has
something uncanny about it, for example, the skull made of ivory
to the right of the central display case. On the left in the showcase,
next to the bizarre hands and arms, you’ll find miniature weapons. They come from the Imperial Armoury, one of the 14 collections they both looked at,
searching for exciting objects. Wes Anderson and Juman Malouf pushed
the basic principle of aKunstkammerto the extreme, namely to depict the big world
on a small scale. The exhibition will be here in Vienna
until April, the 28th. We look forward to see you!
