Extract from “Lines of sight”, editorial by Björn Dahlström, Director

The NMNM is launching the review Mirà to offer new perspectives on art and its activities at the service of the public, to promote their exposure to contemporary creation and to safeguard a precious heritage that it is in our interest to enrich and bring to light. By inviting researchers to consider its collections and its lines of thought, and by offering a panorama of the different professions that make up the museum’s teams and their missions, Mirà proposes not only to cast light on what goes on behind the scenes at the museum, but above all to offer a different perspective on art and the world around us. That is its aim.

The exhibition Tremblings seemed an appropriate choice for this inaugural issue, regarding both the tribute it pays to the NMNM’s acquisitions policy during the twelve years it was directed by Marie-Claude Beaud, and its references to the philosophy and poetics of Édouard Glissant. In their own way, the works selected by Célia Bernasconi and presented at the Villa Paloma all speak of the need to reconsider the diversity of viewpoints and remind us that there is no escape from the challenges thrown up by a world in the throes of violent upheaval.
