Post-Museum

Post-Museum is an independent cultural and social space in Singapore which aims to encourage and support a thinking and pro-active community. It is an open platform for examining contemporary life, promoting the arts and connecting people. In addition to their events and projects, they also curate, research and collaborate with a network of social actors and cultural workers.

For Bukit Brown Index (2014-) is an ongoing project which indexes the case of Bukit Brown Cemetery. The struggle to conserve Bukit Brown is not read as a sentimental conservation but a struggle over Singapore’s Soul. Part of a worldwide movement, part social experiment, Post-Musem’s Really Really Free Market (2009-) form a temporary ‘free’ market zone based on alternative gift economy. The project creates a temporal physical manifestation of a micro-utopia where the fundamental economic structure is altered with a structured that value acts of ‘giving, sharing and caring heart’.

Currently operating nomadically, they continue to organise and host various events and activities in different spaces. 

Post-Museum has been included in various international exhibitions and events, including Busan Biennale 2012 (Korea), 2010 Next Wave Festival (Melbourne, Australia) and The 4th Fukuoka Asian Art Triennale 2009 (Japan).

Post-Museum was founded in 2007 by Jennifer Teo and Woon Tien Wei.
