Breaking Worlds

A history of human culture could be written in terms of places, usually crossroads, “worlds”, in a way, that have generated particularly fertile eruptions of art, knowledge and expression.

Museums and galleries are places that conserve the tragic remains of the demolition of those worlds. Third victim: Maxwell Street, Chicago, wiped off the map by a university campus (with friends like that…). For more on the death of Maxwell St. go here
