Founded by Jolie Booth and Lucy Malone, the Museum of Ordinary People is an award-winning pop-up museum.
Winner if the Brighton Fringe Visual Arts Award in Association with HOUSE and AOH.
MOOP is a new kind of museum that tells the stories of ordinary people, exploring and considering the magic and mundanity of ordinary life, chronicling hidden narratives and celebrating the ripples that we leave behind. It serves as an antidote to celebrity mania and the pervasive cultural construct of presenting picture-perfect versions of our lives. It is also a direct rebellion against an already well-established canon of museums celebrating the lives of the elite. MOOP is a temporary / pop-up museum running for one week during the Brighton Fringe Festival presenting collections created by and about ordinary people, as part of a wider programme of events that includes performances, talks and workshops.
