The Homeless Museum of Art (HOMU) is an art project created by New York-based artist Filip Noterdaeme. Since its inception in 2002, it has at turns been a live-in museum in a rental apartment in Brooklyn, an activist's initiative, an exhibit in a vacant artist studio, a collection of original artworks, a mock museum booth embedded in a commercial art fair, and an interactive art installation last seen on the Highline in Chelsea, NYC. Juggling irreverence and sincerity, HOMU seeks to subvert the increasingly impersonal, market-driven art world and expose the sellout of cultural institutions to commerce, cronyism, real estate, and star architects. HOMU exists in a state of perpetual flux and continues to defy the rules of the established art world.
