Reservoir is the MM-U collection and is understood as a living, transforming resource. It contains fieldwork photographs taken in storage units of museums, as well as videos, audio files, and texts collated for internal use by the faculty and guests of the MM-U. Elements from the Reservoir can be brought into a Bureau d’Esprit, and then referenced in a public Debating Chamber. The fieldwork photographs are available for research but we ask that they not be reproduced and used in another context without prior permission from the photographers and the MM-U.
