The Museum of Contemporary Farming is an impossible project.

It is manifested by its curator Georgina Barney, invited guests and the public through conversations, ideas and artworks.

From September 2017 to April 2018, as part of the 'Museum of the Intangible' project at the Museum of English Rural Life (The MERL) at the University of Reading, artist and farmer Kate Genever is developing artwork for the Museum on the theme of 'improvisation'.
