Grand Stair Screenings: M+ in the Making

'M+ in the Making' takes audiences on a journey across the building through a documentary video and a series of playful animations that explore different aspects of it. The screening programme also presents a rich selection of videos in which artists and makers share stories and behind-the-scenes insights about their works in the M+ collection.

Building M+

What does it mean to establish an institution at the same time as constructing its physical building?

Building M+ charts M+’s journey from a vision on paper to a museum of visual culture moving into its concrete home. As a new kind of global institution based in Hong Kong, M+ has worked closely with Swiss firm Herzog & de Meuron and a team of international collaborators to articulate its identity and ambitions through architecture and materiality. Through footage of the construction process and interviews with architects, engineers, builders, and partners, Building M+ reveals how the final form of the building is not only a fitting response to M+’s geographical location and functional needs, but also an embodiment of the museum’s core values.

How to Build a Museum: SUPERCUT

You might have watched artist Vincent Broquaire conjure rods and tiles from thin air with the stroke of a pen. You may have followed all of his button-pressing, switch-flipping, rocket-shooting, and fly-by landscaping. Now, you can relive our favourite builder's whimsical construction journey from start to finish in this SUPERCUT.

This series of ten animated episodes was commissioned by M+ to document the museum's complex, multi-year building project from a new and playful perspective. Broquaire’s black-and-white animations offer a poetic commentary on the contradictions of our relationship with the built environment and a roadmap for rebuilding the world according to our imaginations.

Watch the interview with Vincent Broquaire.
