"If only we could all escape from this house of incest, where we only love ourselves in the other, if only I could save you all from yourselves." -Anaïs Nin, House of Incest (1936)
Post-Museum collaborates with literary revolutionaries Grapheme Zine Lab to present House of Incest, a week-long multi-disciplinary groupshow that features a surreal, provocative art exhibition, in addition to other fringe events such as academic talks, film screenings and an intimate poetry reading.
Post-Museum is an independent cultural and social space in Singapore which aims to encourage and support a thinking, pro-active community. It hosts the Singapore Really Really Free Market, has seen talks by local Green groups, performances by Japanese Fringe Theatre practitioners, and art workshops amongst others.
However, Post-Museum will be closing down in its current premises come end July with the end of their current lease, and will be fund-raising in the hopes of opening a new independent space.
