Collectively created and located in the year 3020, the M.A.M.I. museum brings together several works, memes and performances of popular feminist culture created to face the violence of extinct patriarchy in the 21st century.
M.A.M.I is a museum from the future, set in 3021 to archive pieces of feminist resistance against different forms of gender based violence. The idea of the museum emerged in a workshop in Santiago de Chile, with a group of feminists artists and activists and support from Hivos. Currently, all the participants have joined the Matronato, running M.A.M.I as a collective project. To visit M.A.M.I., you must have a device with an Internet connection. Visits can be made any day of the week, without prior appointment at: http://museamami.org
The pieces contained in M.A.M.I date back to more than 1000 years ago, at the end of the 20th century, when feminists produced different creative expressions as practices of resistance to patriarchy and the horrors of machismo. Today, in the year 3020, these forms of discrimination and violence may seem primitive and even non-existent, but it is important to remember so that you will never again feel the universal shame that our planet had before the other companions of the cosmos.
M.A.M.I is an acronym that can be used in various ways and freely, such as Archaeological Museum of Immemorial Machismo, Museum of Incredible Misogynistic Antiquities, Musea Interativa Anti Machismo, Museum of Modern and Insubordinate Art, Autonomous Museum of Intergalactic Women…
M.A.M.I. was publicly presented on February 19, the International Day of the Fall of Patriarchate. We believe that this date coincides with the political will and aesthetic impulse that governs the mission of our institution in the search to keep alive the memories of feminist resistance throughout history and especially in the distant past millennium.
The collection and how to participate
M.A.M.I. is permanently open to new incorporations. If you have any work or work as an archeologist for the last millennium, you can collaborate with the collection.
M.A.M.I.’s works are digital archives, classified according to the type of sexist violence they document and counter-argue. The M.A.M.I. allows you to take various tours, as the museum’s rooms are built and deconstructed according to the interests that encourage a visit to its collection. There are different categories, themes, formats and sensations to which the works respond. You can also visit the museum from the curatorship proposals.
M.A.M.I. emerges as a collective project from the creative work of about 15 fellow time travelers from different Abya Yala countries who, in the remote year of 2017, met in Santiago, Chile, in a workshop facilitated by Lucía Egaña, Joana Varon and Paz Peña, to think about different ways to respond to everyday, structural and Internet patriarchal violence.
The partners who participated in this process are now part of the M.A.M.I.’s matronage. They are Anamhoo, Kalogatias, Fer Shira, Larissa Santiago, Juliana, Liliana Zaragoza Cano, Maka, Rocío Venegas, Shariana Ferrer, Senoritaugarte, Steffania Paola, Yela Quim, Yoselin Fernandez, Daniela Maldonado, Amarela, Valeria Antezana. This M.A.M.I design meeting was held by Coding Rights, with logistical support from Digital Rights and financial support from Hivos.
