    Humans inhabit the space of the present according to our past and, in turn, we construct our past from our present. All buildings have a history—a history of the domestic or the public, of the solitary man or the collective—but it is always about transience, about what we lived and what we staged.

    Inhabited Architecture is a presentation from the permanent collections of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, reflecting on the occupation of space as a place full of existing narratives or narratives yet to be created by the observer.

    Exhibiting collection works for the first time in the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, Inhabited Architecture presents Liam Gillick’s How are you going to behave? A kitchen cat speaks (2009), Doris Salcedo’s Untitled (2008), Mona Hatoum’s Home (1999), Pello Irazu’s Life Forms 304 (2003), and Cristina Iglesias’s Untitled (Alabaster Room) (Sin título [Habitación de alabastro], 1993).
