since 2017, Museum of Impossible Forms has delved into various spheres of working within and outside of its physical space. As a space, it has eventually come to be defined through both its commitment to provide multi-modal platforms for critical thinking, and experimental methods of doing; as well as being consistently available as a venue for voices, practices and forms of being otherwise silenced and unheard.

The various forms of happenings, activations and events at Museum of Impossible Forms are concentrated within our various Ongoing Projects, Special Events, and hosted events:


 

Ongoing Projects
