Audio guide – excerpt
[..] There was no better place than this late capitalist building to house the Museum of Late Capitalism, in which you find yourself today. Besides the historical interest of the shopping center itself, the museum stands in the middle of an archaeological site very rich in period artefacts. In January 2142, nearly a century after the fall of late capitalism, a small team was formed to create this space. The space has managed to assemble an exceptional collection of 32,273 period artefacts from historians, capitalistologists and collectors from all continents. It was shortly after that I arrived. Me, it’s Tiphaine Montès, called Tif la Mouche, also called Tif. I’m in charge of the museum of late capitalism, in charge of guided tours, indecipherable archives and old things unearthed. I’ve been preparing this audioguide for a long time and plan to talk about quite a few artifacts during the tour. 32 273 exactly, if you have a little time in front of you. [..]
