The P.A.R.A.S.I.T.E.Museum of Contemporary Art is an artistic organism, both mobile formation and institution. It serves as a critical model and a spiritual structure which assumes the outward name and form of a "museum", but functions autoreferentially and transparently at the same time: it reveals a strategy and analyses processes and rules.
PMCA is a symbolic virtual institution and critical formation. Its location and identity are unclear and for most even today still completely unknown. In recent projects PMCA deals with esearch and analysis of parallel information strategies and parallel economic models in selected urban areas.
