Visitors can buy a T-shirt of their own choice, the only condition being that they share a bit of personal information about themselves, or more precisely: their name and address. When paying for the T-shirt at the museum-shop, the information is mapped in Google Maps, thereby making it possible to see where each T-shirt ends up after leaving the museum.
During the course of the exhibition, the 300 T-shirts will
gradually disappear from the physical museum space only
to re-appear on the web. Consequently, by buying a T-shirt
visitors do not simply get a personal piece of the installation - they
also help contribute to its collective development and distribution.
The aim of Social Souvenir is:
1) To re-activate the museum's collection and make it available to the public in a new way using new forms of media.
2) To create social links between (random) museum visitors, thereby creating a stronger sense of community.
