Bored at the Museum is an ongoing, user-driven online project by artist Navid Nuur; it was first published in 2011 by Mousse Publishing as “Bored at the Museum, Bored at the Studio,” a two-way book produced for the “Post Parallelism” exhibition at Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen.

The book is a compilation of images found on the Internet by Nuur and described as a depiction of “The ‘creative boredom’ that often seizes visitors to traditional museum spaces.” [sic] In its online form, the project also serves up a strong indictment against tourism—let’s be honest here: American tourism—not to mention a strong argument for restrictive, all-but-impossible-to-enforce museum photography policies. Social anthropology, in action! Also: this guy.
