Post-Museum was founded by Jennifer Teo and Woon Tien Wei in 2007.

Post-Museum is an independent cultural and social space which aims to encourage and support a thinking and pro-active community. It is an open platform for examining contemporary life, promoting the arts and connecting people. Post-Museum aims to respond to its location and communities as well as find ways to create micro-Utopias where the people actively imagine and create the cultures and worlds they desire.

In its first phase, Post-Museum ran a physical space along Rowell Road (in the historic district of Little India), in two 1920s shophouses. The premises included a restaurant (Food #03), 2 multi-purpose rooms, artist studios and offices. Post-Museum ran a programme of talks, exhibitions, residencies and other events, as well as functioned as venue for hire.

Currently in its second phase (from Sep 2011), Post-Museum is a nomadic space focusing on developing Social Practice art projects including Singapore Really Really Free Market, Awaken the Dragon and The Bukit Brown Project.

Post-Museum has been included in various international exhibitions and events, including Busan Biennale 2012 (Korea), 2010 Next Wave Festival (Melbourne, Australia) and The 4th Fukuoka Asian Art Triennale 2009 (Japan).

In 2015, they were invited by curator Yves Chiu for one month residency at Bamboo Curtain Studio and to participated in the exhibition “M.E.L.Ting Project – One Year Conversation: Thread, Ghost Story, Escape.”

From May 2nd to May 4th, 2018, Bamboo Curtain Studio and Taipei International Art Village co-organized a workshop on "Cultivation of Perpetual Awareness" and invited Jennifer Teo and Woon Tien Wei as lecturers. Post-Museum is very interested in how people participate in cities in more meaningful ways, and also insists that people have the power to create/recreate themselves and their cities. Since the beginning of the practice of nomadic strategy, they have developed several roaming programs in Singapore, such as free markets and urban camping, trying to build "mini utopias" and "temporary autonomous regions" in the cities. In the forum, they shared the "Really Really Free Market" series of events and related programs as examples of art, economic experiments, and local recycling.
