MuNA – Museum of no art

Museum of No Art is artist Riiko Sakkinen's answer to an invitation to make an exhibition about institution of the museum. Something is missing, however. Sakkinen's museum has no art.

MuNA at Serlachius Museum Gösta consists of the products in the museum shop and posters printed for the exhibition. Museum of No Art has a stylish logo that can be seen at many locations: at MuNA's website, in Facebook, in Twitter and at adverts.

– MuNA is dystopic museum where art has no meaning. All that matters at MuNA is money, power, brand and the number of visitors, Sakkinen explains.

In fact, MuNA consists merely of products sold at the museum shop. In Sakkinens'n view, the museum shop seems to be the heart of many museums.

– To sell souvenirs is far more important than art. Muna has therefore cleaned away everything that is unnecessary. Art is a necessity only for making museum commercials.
