"Spitzmaus Mummy in a Coffin and other Treasures" shot by Rosa Rendl

What is there to say about an exhibition comprising works only from a museum’s collection and predominantly put together based on pure aesthetics? It can be distilled to this: “Spitzmaus Mummy in a Coffin and other Treasures”, curated by Wes Anderson and Juman Malouf at the Kunsthistorischen Museum Wein, exists and is there for you to see. So instead of some writer writing some words, we thought we’d ask the Vienna-based artist, musician, swimwear designer, and photographer Rosa Rendl to go and shoot the show for Spike – and even if you’ve already been, still click through because you might not have seen it quite like this.
