In close cooperation with the master’s degree students in architecture of University of Applied Sciences Biberach (Germany), a mobile pavilion made of recyclable materials was created that housed the Museum for the Age of Penumbra.
In 4589, descendants of the last Homines Sapientes set foot on earth again. Mankind, substantially decimated by numerous nuclear world wars and miscalculations of climatological corrective measures, had finally left its native planet at the end of the Age of Penumbra shortly after the turn of the third millennium in order to establish places of knowledge together with humanoid synthetic poks. During their excavations, the returnees found not only various everyday and cult objects shown here from the Anthropocene and the subsequent Age of Penumbra, but also the remains of some fewer buildings: a section of the 45 meter high wall in the north of the United States of Central America, an underground ultra market in Guanghzou and a small bezos with the puzzling inscription "Museum". Googlists were and still are not in agreement about the function of this building. However, the shape of the replica exhibited here indicates that it is a kind of archive for storage and worship of what was called "stuff" at the time. (Julian Rosefeldt)
