The Institute of Ongoing Things is a sequel to the artist's confrontation of personal and national traumas, as well as his engagement with historical events that shape his political identity. It also raises issues relating to the museum's function in preserving memory and its role in shaping personal identity and communal affiliation.

Like the museum, which is based on a collection relating to Jewish culture, Katzenstein's library is based on a collection that explores the artist's self image. It also probes his culturally and politically explosive surroundings.  Like the museum, this exhibition addresses memories of the past and visions of the future.
