Post-Museum finds a home in The Substation’s premises since it closed its physical space in 2011. For one month, the arts collective will run its programme SURVEY: Space, Sharing, Haunting, offering over 30 activities that invite audiences to examine and reflect upon the state of the arts and culture in Singapore. These include Exhibition, Activity Station, Club, Event, Lecture, Performance, and Residency.
SURVEY includes So It May Seed (urban farm growing food crops), Murder Most Foul (interactive murder mystery show), and Club House (multipurpose social space). SURVEY will also encompass other activities such as renaming the building and reconfiguring the space.
Many of Post-Museum’s projects blur the line between art and social causes, and it is precisely for this reason that it was invited, to ask what if The Substation returned to its early years in civic and social causes?
Woon Tien Wei, Founder, Post-Museum, comments, “Today, we are in a crisis situation where the very ideals on which The Sub was founded are being interrogated and even subjugated in the ‘Renaissancing’ of Singapore’s cultural landscape. SURVEY asks: How have the values of Singapore’s arts community changed in the last 20 years? What are the values of the arts community today?”
