Skeletons in the Closet exhibition at Museum of Natural History focuses not on the exhibition spaces of the museum, but on the space behind the scenes

Klaus Pichler - Skeletons in the Closet: Museum of Natural History, Vienna (2010-ongoing) 

Artist’s statement:

“What does a museum look like behind the scenes? How are exhibits stored when they are not on display?

The focus of this study is not on the exhibition spaces of the museum, but on the space behind the scenes, particularly depots, cellars, and storage rooms assigned to individual departments which are generally not accessible to the public.

These spaces are used for the storage of countless exhibits belonging to various collections, sorted following a rigidly scientific classification system, but also taking into account the limited storage space available.”
