Who Guards the Museum, by TZUSOO, is a VR(Virtual Reality) Simulation, which brings you to some museums. In the specific work <Who Guards the Museum - Stadt Galerie Sindelfingen>, as wearing a VR glasses, you experience to visit Stadt Galerie Sindelfingen. The environment is definitely from a reality, but it is a newborn space by the artist at the same time.
 
While you walk around the museum, you meet guards(Aufsicht) working there, too. Their figures are also from reality.
Howerver, their figure is surrealistic - like art works it self. For example, one enormous guard is filling a whole room in the museum. The other one is like a interactive sculpture.
Museum is the place to show art works. But in her virtual museum, she shows who the guards are. The concept was inspired by the artist’s own experience, working in the museum as asian woman and she realised that in many museums in Stuttgart(Kunst Museum, Landes Museum, etc), most of guards are from all over the world including Germany and they are different ages, earn various wage.
 
Who guards the art in the museum? How much they are paid? What is contract condition? Where are they from? These questions drag us to the situation of modern society.
And the answers might provide a clue of what “Utopias in Urban Societies.” What is new form old city seeks? We could not help talking about internationalisation and new form of labour ship.
 
Coming back to the title Who Guards the Museum, it is giving a hint. “Museum” represents identity and history of each cities or region. It does not only exist, but inherit. Then thinking of who guards it, it could be a metaphor how the city is.
