Three Provocations

Provocation A
Museums dislike the rough sleeping homeless people, alienating them from outside with architectural prevention measures and from within, using cashless engagement for entry and purchases.
Provocation B
Museums and arts institutions are too complicit with developers and councils and through this, the arts has encouraged the housing and homelessness crisis. As shiny additions to regeneration schemes that lead to social cleansing and displacement, some museums and other arts spaces are part of the problem.”
Provocation C
Museums invite people who are homeless into the fold for brief tokenistic consultations/one-off installations and shows, providing a sense of welcome and inclusion only to kick people who are homeless back out again, breaking community trust and reinforcing barriers.
