Curated by PHIL EDWARDS

The Museum of Abject Sentimentality examines how contemporary artists use the abject object to explore historical notions of the Sublime. This faux museum investigates the implications of Freidrich Schillers’ essay “On Naïve and Sentimental Poetry” (1795 -1796), in which the author contemplates the interrelation of art, literature and abjection.
