The museum is joining the “Marcapáginas (Bookmark)” initiative
The museum has joined the Marcapáginas (Bookmark) initiative which was launched by Consonni, an art project producer, and developed by the Basque artist Maider López (San Sebastián, 1975).
The project consists in collecting all kinds of objects regularly used as bookmarks (an underground ticket, an invitation card, a scrap of paper, a letter, a receipt, a photograph) in several collection boxes/urns installed at different places around Bilbao, including the Bilbao Fine Arts Museum. One of these collected bookmarks will be included in each copy of the book by the writer and independent filmmaker Chris Kraus (New York, 1955) which will be released for sale next autumn.
In this way, whoever wants to buy the book in a bookshop or browses through it in a library will find an object that is mass-produced yet unique, since inside it will carry another individual's particular experience.
The bookmarks may be deposited in the box installed at the ticket counter at the entrance to the museum until the 25th of September of this year.
