As part of Nicolas Boulard’s The Rule of Cool exhibition, Christophe Kim presents his programme for a museum of extraterrestrial art. The Museum of Extraterrestrial Art brings together works at the outer limits of physical space and of art. The MAE is at the intersection of various types of museums and museographic practices, from art centres to museums of early art, from ethnology to alienology… All documents produced by the MEA are translated into extraterrestrial language.
