When a thing is selected for display in a museum it usually enters into a dialogue with a number of other things that make up a story about an aspect of our historic, scientific or cultural surroundings determined by extant research. The Museum of IF works backwards by selecting (sometimes arbitrary) things in order to then work out what stories could possibly justifying their selection. The most powerful items within the collection are capable of prompting us to rethink how and why we look at things in the first place. From ideas about museums of the future to ideas about very different kinds of museums that might exist in our own reality, the museum might become something that can serve a very different purpose to those we understand today, connecting to other demographics of people, attached to alternative economic models or bestowing value on to aspects of our world that are currently ignored.
