How to Build a Museum: Episode 4
How to Build a Museum: Episode 4
1:33

How do you build a museum? Step four: untether foldout rooms, pop-up pillars, and accordion staircases

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 five!
