«Das imaginäre Museum»

The image shows André Malraux among the photographs for his volume «Les Voix du Silence,» in which he developed his concept for the ‹imaginary museum›. What the photographs form on the floor is an archival grid compiling, side by side, the most diverse objects from diverse epochs and cultures.
