What are your favorite museums? Artist Maurizio Cattelan answers at your place. In collaboration with Seletti, he designed a series of t-shirt scarves, which instead of representing football teams, bear the names of the biggest museums in the world.

Colours are perfectly matched, and so are the name of the institutions and the “museum chants”, one for each scarf, created according to the museums’ DNA and coordinated images. Many international museum already agreed to be part of this project, and each one will be selling the scarves in their shops and e-shops: the idea is to build a growing museums’ league which could potentially involve all the international players in the contemporary art world. 

“Inspired by Joseph Beuys’ quote ‘everybody can be an artist’ I like to think that ‘everyone can be a collector’”, Maurizio Cattelan explains. “Made in Catteland tries to redesign the shape of museums’ gifts shops: their audience is the same as art shows, but most of the times their offer has nothing to do with museums or the works of art displayed in them. Visitors are usually forced to pass through like in a duty-free shop. Why shouldn’t the shops have the same aesthetic path as the museums themselves?”.
