ahistoric or ahistorical 1 : free from or without regard to the temporal or finite world     2 : not concerned with or related to history, historical development , or tradition


It looks like ahistorical better describes what is going on here. Plus, there is now also the relation between the atemporal/ahistorical and muse[em]ifification.

2009: Use your museums, especially if they're not there to begin with.

2007: "The impossibility of using has its emblematic place in the Museum. The muse[um]ification of the world is today an accomplished fact. One by one, the spiritual potentialities that defined the people's lives--art, religion, philosophy the idea of nature, even politics--have docilely withdrawn into the Museum. "Museum" here is not a given physical space or place but the separate dimension to which what was once--but is no longer--felt as true and decisive has moved. In this sense, the Museum can coincide with an entire city (such as Evora and Venice, which were declared World Heritage Sites), a region (when it is declared a park or natural preserve), and even a group of individuals (in so far as they represent a form of life that has disappeared). But more generally, everything today can become a Museum..." --Agamben

2003.02.13 : I wish museums mixed things up more. For example, I'd like to see Poons in a French period room, or Duchamp in a Ladies Room. Brancusi next to armour, why not? Museum as future-shock, sorta. Pick your destiny.     »»»»

2003.02.13 I now find myself wondering whether I should attempt compiling all my work into a daily (i.e., 365 day) index, where what I've done on any particular day is catalogued, thus ultimately providing] an atemporal/ahistorical calendar?

1999: ...garage sale as museum...

joke from the early 1980s:
A: What comes after museum?
Q: pre-shrine
