Muree Water Works – Museum of Speculated Objects, 2017


Fazal Rizvi

During the summer of 2017, The Museum of Speculated Objects, was invited by the Murree Museum Artist Residency, to critically examine the running of Muree Water Works. Through objects, instances, anecdotes and field research, the ‘exhibition’ hopes to make visible, the failures, inadequacies and the inefficiencies of the water supply system in Muree upon which the local population is dependent.
