The result of this dialogue is a reflection on the impossibility of recreating the past in the museum space. By analyzing three museum representations in the narrative of the author written in the 1980’s, this article presents a unique and challenging reading of this space and its participation in the discourse of ignorance and confusion of the character willing to reconstruct his past and identity. It proposes the need for the living memory of the individual visitor that begins to interact with museum objects. The analysis of different representations of the museum and its theoretical implications leads to the conclusion that this space in the narrative of Merino becomes a metaphor for the existential condition of the individual.
