The Transitory Museum
by Emanuele Coccia, Donatien Grau

from December 21st, 2018
at Fondazione Sozzani Bookstore.

Throughout modernity there has been a clear divide between art and commerce.
Objects could either be consumed as commerce or contemplated as art.
Today, as museums are facing increasing financial pressure
and as stores have become inventive locations for the conception of new modes of display,
this clear divide has shifted. One place signifies a key stage in this evolution:
10 Corso Como.

It was founded in Milan at that very address in 1991
by fashion editor Carla Sozzani
and has since expanded to Seoul, Beijing, Shanghai and New York.
The name “concept store”, which has now spread across our globalised world,
was originally coined to describe this new form.
It brings together objects for sale, artworks, books, clothes, accessories,
and even souvenirs in a unique location, blending commerce and contemplation, fashion and art.
Stemming from a case study of this genre-defining entity,
this first philosophical inquiry into a store aims to shed a new light on how categories
that have governed our modern social, economic, political and individual lives,
such as commerce, art, fashion, museum, are being redefined today.
It calls on us to re-engage with what we long considered to be separate:
transcendence and immanence, human beings and their objects.

Spleen Romain Gary

«A brilliant piece of work illuminates itself when it forgets it is brilliant.
I think in respect to the great masters of literature, the student is to use them
as brutally as possible; to devour them. Because they are made for this;
to get one’s hands dirty and transform them into something else.» 
Manuel Fior

and Manuele Fior, illustrator
