Storageroom features complete digitized exhibitions ready for download and display at various venues by secondary curators.
The Storageroom features complete exhibitions that are available for download, which underwent a process of digitalization so as to preserve the full quality after they have been downloaded in their respective formats (video, sound, photography, text etc.). After they have been downloaded, the exhibitions could be displayed in the venues available to the secondary curators (those who chose to download the exhibitions) and the conditions they have at their disposal.
The same exhibition could be displayed simultaneously by agents of completely dissimilar nature and financial means: as the exhibition will be displayed differently, and convey cultural and curatorial perceptions that reflect not only the perception of the exhibition%u2019s curators, but also those of the secondary curators displaying it.
