Following the exhibitions A museum in artwork(s) and Storage: The Museum Depot in 2000 and 2004 respectively, the Hainaut Province's artwork collection was again available for discovery at the BPS22, this time from a new perspective.
The Mudam (the Grand Duke Jean Museum of Modern Art, Luxembourg) and the MuHKA (the Flemish community's Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp) agreed to fuse their collections with the Hainaut Province collections, in the form of a game with interlocking objects, inspired by the well-known video game. The exhibition addressed issues related to living spaces and the media, and considered collective ideologies as well as the relationship with the individual.
Each piece was placed one after the other by each institution, gradually filling the space. The works interacted with one another through common points, whether conceptual, stylistic, historical or anecdotal, as well as through opposition, artistic influence, and other characteristics.
