The artist group hobbypopMUSEUM first came to public notice with a self-designed project at the old central post office in Düsseldorf in 1998. The piece was an early example of the collective's characteristic approach: they like to work in interactive fashion and scrutinize the phenomena of the “museum” and the “exhibition” from a variety of angles. To this purpose, they employ a wide range of media: their ensembles incorporate paintings, sculptures, photographs, and video pieces in visually powerful installations. A band touring the world of art and transforming any venue on its never-ending roadshow into a total play of art: that is the guiding idea behind hobbypopMUSEUM.

Contains essays by Oriane Durand, Andrew Renton, Benjamin Thorel, and Sam Watson, looking back on twenty years of hobbypopMUSEUM.
