Mues Design

Timothy Prus and Edward Jones from the Archive of Modern Conflict curate two rooms brimming with artwork and artefacts from their unique collection. Large-scale graphic wallpapers provide the foundation over which hundreds of frames are hung, postersize images are plastered over, with shelves installed, laden with yet more curious objects. Specially designed vitrines, soiled lamps and inert bombs complete the room. Like a black comedy, these rooms reveal the inglorious human debris of war, set out in a chaotic, disturbing yet playful way. The visitor may leave remembering nothing, as if to mirror the experience of the people described in the Archive’s manipulated books on Amnesia.
