How to Build a Museum: Episode 3
How to Build a Museum: Episode 3
1:21

How do you build a museum? Step three: blast a rocket-powered podium into place.

In this series of ten animated episodes commissioned by M+, French artist Vincent Broquaire responds to the complexity of the museum’s architecture and engineering with a meeting of whimsical fantasy and realistic sonic effects. Step by step, a working man coolly guides us through a gonzo construction process of accordion staircases, inflatable towers, and moveable horizons.

Broquaire’s animations frequently explore man’s relationship with nature and the built environment, offering a poetic commentary on the contradictions of our world and a roadmap for rebuilding it according to our imaginations. M+ commissioned these animations to document the museum's complex multi-year building project from a new, playful perspective.

Curious about what happens next? Stay tuned for episode four!

Vincent Broquaire is a Strasbourg-based artist working with drawings, animations, and installations in collaboration with galleries and museums. He studied art and graphic design at L’École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Lyon and the Haute école des arts du Rhin in Strasbourg.
